In conjunction with the opening of a small gallery for my wire sculpture, I have just launched a new website. Unfortunately, this means lots of 404 errors until the new pages and images get established in the search engines again.
Please have a visit… I look forward to any/all feedback. Thanks!
I almost forgot about this site… well, after some time off to move and regroup, I have come back to my wire sculpture. I’m working on setting up a small gallery where I can invite people to view my work in person. I also have a new website in the works. In the meantime, I continue to post new pieces to my facebook page, so come on over and join the fun!
I have a fellow wire artist looking for some advice. He works with enameled copper and would like to silver-plate some of his pieces. I am fortunate enough to be able to send my work to a supplier to have this process done, so I don’t know much about it. Eric is thinking of doing it himself. He asks these questions:
- Ideas for getting rid of the plastic coating on the copper?
- Would you recommend a silver nitrate solution as the electrolyte?
- Could the process be done in a plastic container?
- Any other advice/recommendation?
As an advocate for increasing the awareness and popularity of wire as an artistic medium, I have invited friends and colleagues who love wire art and sculpture to join me here on this blog. I am not an expert on the technical aspects of operating this site, but I am excited to encourage more interactivity and sharing among like-minded creative types.
So, let’s chat!
What kind of wire do you use? Do you sell your wire art? Where do you get your tools?
This commissioned piece was created as a gift for a woman who devoted 35 years to a child care group. The large angel and the five smaller ones are intertwined to create a single sculpture titled “Taking Care”. Artist: Angela Hook.

Wow, there’s been so much fun and excitement this summer! One of the great things I was able to be a part of is the mural mosaic Le Cadeau du Cheval (The Horse Gift), which is being created by equine artists around the world and assembled for presentation at Spruce Meadows in the fall.
Here is my panel (#232). Click on the image at the left for more details on the piece, and to explore the rest of the mural! Lewis, Phil and Paul have done an amazing job of creating and coordinating many of these murals for different occasions.
It’s really fun to see what the panels looked like before each artist painted them, and also to see the mural come together piece by piece… to reveal the final image!
