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 jetéd 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.
