We know that you are quite amazed after reading the headline. Because the idea of turning steel wire into beautiful metal sculptures is quite interesting. Martin Debenham is a British artist living in the Dorset countryside. The artist is making the impossible things happen by creating beautiful sculptures that easily blend with nature.
The artist says his favorite hobbies are ‘dancing, taking walks and watching telly’. But, he also creates beautiful intricate wire sculptures that will mesmerize you with their detail. However, the artist says that he didn’t have a lot of artistic training. He got into sculpture after taking up a temporary job making topiary frames in 2008.
Now, the artist offers tuitions and has prepared instruction manuals for those who wish to try their hand at making metal sculptures. To create the sculptures, the artist uses stainless steel wire between 1.6mm and 5mm diameter. He says it is thin enough to be manipulated by hand or with pliers and thick enough to be welded with a welder. And to create these beautiful wire sculptures, he makes use of clay modeling practice. Once you see the beautiful works, you too will probably want to try this on your own. So scroll down to see his artistic works.
