"This is amazing! Hope its the first of many more. I love the wirework and the wire and tin creations that is done in SA. When our grown up children were in primary school there was a small wire work project on the curriculum. I remember thinking then - that it was much harder to do than what I thought it would be for the children and this really has potential to become 'something' in future.
"At that stage wire figurines and little windmills etc was not sold on the roadside as it has been for sometime now and my oh my - some of these creations are done by artists - people who have a really good eye!"
