I’ve been mulling over making a lamp for my dresser for a while now and had an epiphany the other day I’m trying to figure out where to start to pursue. I’d like to carve the post of the lamp out of barbed wire that would wrap around a copper pipe that would hold the wiring. the carving would be cylindrical – kinda like DNA or something but carved to look like barbed wire. Whittling? sculpting? Other?
I’m not quite sure as I’ve never forayed into this kind of thing. I wouldn’t mind learning how to do it as it seems extremely creative and fun (minus the poking/slicing). The lamp has waited this long a bit longer won’t hurt, I’m just not sure how to classify this type of carving to start my research. a nudge in the right direction would be appreciated :)
