Another unexpected material that continues to captivate contemporary sculptors is metal wire. A simple, malleable medium praised for its endless artistic potential and pioneered by modern artist Alexander Calder. Calder also has a prolific portfolio of figurative wire sculpture.
Using wire made of copper and steel, he crafted numerous sculptures of animals, figures, and, less commonly, objects. Each piece showcases the artist’s innovative approach to sculpting and his mastery of the medium.
