Mmm-hmm, it's a pegasus. Made from wire. And buttons!
I will admit that I stole the idea of using wire to make sculptures from my friend Caitlin (mercilessly) but she is still much much better at it. I don't think she's made a pegasus, but you never know with Le Crate.
The base it's mounted on is the top half of a plastic box my watch came in, proving that you should always keep interesting boxes. ;)
And I'll now give away that my house doesn't have expensive oak panelling; I took the photos up against our piano.
