Wire sculpture is the creation of sculpture or jewelry from wire. Metal wire in jewelry dates back to the 2nd Dynasty in Egypt. But it was an American sculptor, Alexander Calder, who in 1927 created art pieces using only wire. Today there is a vast inventory of wire art from many contemporary artists.
Introduce yourself to this medium by making a twisted wire tree in a relaxed enjoyable session at Athens Arts.
