The world of Maggi Hambling, artist

Maggi Hambling CBE (born 23 October 1945 in Sudbury, Suffolk[1]) is a British contemporary painter and sculptor. Perhaps her best-known public works are a sculpture for Oscar Wilde in central London and Scallop, a 4-metre-high steel sculpture on Aldeburgh beach dedicated to Benjamin Britten. Both works have attracted a great degree of controversy.[2]

DIY Twig Wreath ~ Shape heavy rusty wire into a 4" circle (old wire coat hanger or use small wreath form). Collect twigs, make bundles using more wire - leave enough wire to fasten to circle. Trim bottoms so bundles are about 6" or 7" long. Make 15 or 20 bundles (this wreath took 17). Attach bundles one at a time, laying them horizontal with the wire frame & overlapping each.
