Complex Copper Heart

I make these when thinking of someone I love. I look at the way the copper wire wants to bend in and throughout each one of the lines created. I pay attention to the way I feel when I make it, what happens to my hands.

This one came easily and left space for more creation. Like a seed that keeps seeding, it is a complex copper heart within many hearts.

I took this photo in the light and shade of the sun, to see what could be illuminated and to see what edges this complex heart would want to naturally further define, when given the opportunity.

What is a seed?

What makes your heart complex?
