Talented American sculptor and jeweler Ruth Jensen (Spark flight) lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. She is enthralled by wire, which she finds to be perfect for revealing the extraordinary beauty and transience of “ordinary” things. She creates each sculpture one twist at a time, without patterns or molds, using bazillions of pieces of straight wire. No solder, no molds, no preformed mesh, just hours of twisting. “I “see” the shape I want, and make the wires come together in that shape, like putting a puzzle together. (I love puzzles.) My pieces are meant to intrigue and delight you.”
