Discover mesmerizing copper-wire sculptures crafted by D’lisa Creager
After attending an art workshop on wire looping taught by artist/educator Aiko Cuneo (daughter of Ruth Asawa, a famed wire sculptor and student of Josef Albers) 10 years ago, L.A. artist D’lisa Creager was compelled to explore the medium herself. Since then, her mesmerizing large-scale sculptures of looped copper wire, admired for their organic intricacy, have captured the attention of fans such as antiques dealer Joel Chen, designer Windsor Smith and architect Leslie Dowling. A book of hand-drawn organisms by 19th-century zoologist Ernst Haeckel inspired her latest works, in which the academic (she holds a doctorate in social psychology) seeks to “capture the complexity of creatures”; California’s northern coast is also an enduring muse. “It’s hard not to be inspired by such peace and natural beauty,” says Creager. dlisacreagersculpture.com.
