Frank Marino Baker: Wire Artist and Sculptor
Finding how the lines fit together is what I was made to do. When I work with wire and metal I am reminded that the ebb and flow of life can be twisted into almost any outcome. The choices we make bring us to where we are now and our past creates our future. I create by finding the flow of energy and funneling the pieces to fit together to recreate what I see. Even the strength of wire, metal and wood have a ephemeral element that lets me know that life starts to change the moment it is made. A moment is never the same after its creation and even the deepest of moments changes with time as we come to know what they really were. My passion for art and working with wire has let me create many unique pieces.
Wire and Metal Art
Working with wire and metal has been a challenge and a blessing all in one. I love taking something that is cold as metal and wire and creating a living piece of art that is warm and inviting.
