When I was a little kid I would sit on my dad's lap and watch him create sculptures of people out of wire. At about 6 years old I started making my own sculptures. They were usually tiny and made out of a soft copper wire. I loved to make little skeletons, cowboys and helicopters.
These days I use a much sturdier type of steel wire. I also make a lot of wildlife sculptures now, but I still enjoy making cowboys and skeletons!
Each sculpture is almost always one continuous wire that I bend with needle nose pliers. Sometimes I start at the nose, other times I start at the eyes. Then I slowly work out from that point until they start to look like the animal I am trying to create.
Each one turns out unique. What you see here is a good representation of what the animals I am offering look like, but no two end up the same. Sometimes I use a picture to study the animal, but other times I just see how I want to make it in my head.
All of these sculptures are easy to hang on a wall. All you need is a single thumbtack!
On another note- My shipping costs are the price that they are because these sculptures usually require a decent size box and a lot of extra care to ensure that they arrive safely. The dimensions of the box always makes the shipping more expensive for me even if the item is really lightweight.
Risks and challenges
I am confident that I can make and ship 100 sculptures within the posted time frame. That being said, I make each one by hand so If I get a lot more orders than I am anticipating, then I will likely need more time to get your sculpture to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
