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.
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.
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.”
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.
