Really Ethereal

This past weekend, when my family strolled past artist Michael Gard's booth at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, we all stopped. And stared. Transparent, metallic dancers  jet├ęd through the clouds. His wire sculptures are both striking and unique. The ethereal quality of his sculptures is achieved through a process he invented. By first fashioning a clay sculpture, then creating a wax replica, San Francisco artist Gard weaves metal wire around the mold. When he melts the wax away, a new art piece is born.
