This barbed wire basket nest creation was made from vintage dairy farm fencing that is well over 50 years old. The milkers are long gone now, but the farm still stands down in the hollow about a mile from our home.

I found the wire settling into a muddy bank in one of the farm's old abandoned fields, and as I washed the wire it smelled of earth and decaying vegetation. This is a smaller gauge wire with a different barb pattern and quite prickly indeed! The wire is very weathered and has a lovely patina and rugged texture. I secured my piece together with the help of a few rusty wire ties.

This creation measures 7 1/2" by 6 1/2" and is 4 1/4" in depth. Display all by itself as a unique primitive little wall sculpture, or showcase a beautiful airplant within its spiked curves. If used outdoors the piece will continue to rust since it does not have a protective coating.

NOTE: AIRPLANT IS FOR DISPLAY ONLY. Even though I have bent the barbs forward to prevent scratching, please handle with care as some of the points are still fairly sharp.
