13 Incredible Wire Sculptures That Will Leave You In Awe
If you have a good imagination and a pair of wire cutters, you can rule the world. Wire is actually one of the most useful, yet most underappreciated materials, and as such, it tends to get lost in a maze of mundane practicality. We know it’s there, and we know how it works, but we don’t really give wire credit.
Skinny, fat, copper, silver, curly or straight; wire comes in many forms and it is so much more than a boring old electrical component. It is a muse, a tool, and a work of art. Yes, as well as its use in plugs and electronics everywhere, wire can also be fashioned into fancy jewellery, and the use of chicken wire is nothing new to art and sculpture.
However, more and more artists are using twisted wire to create breath-taking sculptures of fairies dancing in the rain, wolves staring onlookers down, and other convincing creatures. They are also creating intricately detailed natural landscapes and trees, and eerily lifelike human figures and faces. Check out some of these superb wire sculptures for yourself in our gallery.
