Taylor has demonstrated a high level of competence in representing the subject matter of a bicycle. There is evidence of careful observation in the handlebars, wheels and spokes, and most components of the bicycle are obvious. Various construction techniques, such as twisting, wrapping, doubling and joining, have been used, but the triangular frame suggests some difficulty may have been experienced in manipulating the wire to create the spatial arrangement. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade B standard at the end of Stage 2.
