Wire Sculpture Art For Fairy Nerds

Wire Sculpture Art For Fairy Nerds

I’m a little bit of a nut when it comes to fairies. I’ve loved them for as long as I can remember. I have little fairy figurines stashed all over my house, I bought my nieces dress-up fairy wings and I will unexpectedly stop short in front of people while window-shopping to look at fairy stuff in store windows. So when I saw these really amazing stainless steel wire fairy sculptures by Robin Wight, I squee’d like a little girl with a slew of doll clothes and a new kitten.

I mean, look at them! LOOK AT THEM.

It’s the fairy equivalent of your umbrella turning inside out.

They’re really amazing! And naturally they’re made in England (Staffordshire, to be precise) because, as everyone knows, most of the really good magical things come from the UK.

“How long do I have to hold this pose?”

Robin says he gives every one of his fairy sculptures a heart of stone because fairies are heartless creatures who would just as soon lead you to your death as look at you. From his website, “A suitable heart shaped pebble is selected and engraved with the owners name(s) or any other message you might want to come up with. Tip: Obviously due to the size of stone, the message will have to be short.”

“RED RUM”

You can contact Robin via his website to request pricing or custom sculptures. You can also follow his Facebook page for behind-the-scenes photos and updates on his current projects. And for those of you with DIY-Disease, he also sells Starter Kits with everything you need to create your own wire fairy work of art!

They are seriously some of the coolest and most beautiful artistic sculptures I’ve seen online recently. LOOK AT THEM. MAH GAW.

Buns of steel.

 

I’ve re-titled this one “Sean Bean”.

 

Fairies are single moms too.

    There’s an old stately home now turned garden and shopping centre near Stoke on Trent that has a large number of these scattered around the grounds. I think most of the pictures of them were taken there. There’s a long walk around an ornamental lake and gardens where you’re supposed to find all the faeries, they’re hidden everywhere, and very cheeky looking. They range from a couple of feet high to larger than life.

    These are pretty effing cool, Cramsey. But we’re in a fight about the oxford comma.
