Incredibly Dynamic Steel Wire Fairy Sculptures Dance in the Wind

Many artists and sculptors use a range of materials to help brign their works of art to life. In the case of UK based artist Robin Wight, steel wire is used to create life-like statues of moving fairies. He builds them in numerous shapes and sizes, all of which a differently moulded to create a truly one of a kind sculpture.

Wight uses different sizes of steel wire to construct each fairy, starting with a thicker skeletal base, and then added thinner layers to show more details in the limbs, muscles and skin. Each layer wraps around the base skeleton to help recreate a life like image of a winged fairy, which are usually striking a pose whilst holding a dandelion. To truly make each statue unique, at the centre is a stone heart with a special message inscribed upon it.

It started as a simple hobby a few years ago, when Wight felt inspired to create a fairy after seeing a photo he took whilst exploring the woods one day. A distorted image of a tree branch gave the illusion of a fairy or other spritely being, giving Wight the perfect stimulus to start crafting his own interpretation of a fairy.

Despite not taken any orders due to an understandable increase in interest, Wight offers a how to section on his website, giving tips and DIY starter kits for any budding sculptors who wish the try and make something a little magical for themselves.  Robin Wight’s Fantasywire website – Fantasywire on Facebook (h/t: Colossal, Reddit)
