Leah Gerrard has worked with metal for twenty years. Her passion for wire was sparked by a jewelry class in Italy, and led her to explore sculpture at Linfield College.

Inspired by a fellow student’s intricate beaded wire baskets, Leah started weaving her own. After making a few beaded baskets, she found that it was the simple skeletal structure of wire that interested her. Self-taught, she experimented with various wires and different weaving techniques.

Leah continues to develop her methods, expanding into large-scale sculpture entwined with found objects. Her process continually evolves in response to challenges created through her designs.
