Modeling Sculpted Fire

I’m attempting to help a sculptor friend by modeling/rendering one of his proposals. My struggle is that, as shown in the attached image (has been edited to maintain the privacy for the artist), the top portion of the sculpture is a flame (made out of stainless steel strips). I’ve never done much with “organic” shapes as i’ve previously done all that work in rhino. Am i missing some obvious work flow or plugin to model this element? Working in 2020 Pro fwiwAny tips would be appreciated!


You can try using quads

Or maybe Sculpt with Artisan.
