William and Bruce Friedle Wire Sunburst Sculpture

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This wonderful composition in wire by brothers William and Bruce Friedle has qualities similar to the work of Harry Bertoia and the Jere studio of the same period. Slender wire rods radiate from a center which has a highly textural surface. The 24" diameter abstract sculpture has two layers which gives it great depth and casts interesting shadows.
