Large Sculpture Piercing Tool/Awl
We sell two different sizes of sculpture Piercing Tool/Awl:
Small: Suitable for use with our 8”/16” craft kits (20/40 cm or similar size sculpture)
Large: Suitable for use with our wire bundles used to create a 20” (50cm) sculpture or taller.
This listing is for the large sculpture Piercing Tool/Awl. It has been designed to be hammered through. You can see the metal tipped end on the photos. This make it perfect for creating large wire sculptures.
You will find the density of a wire sculpture will increase rapidly and you will quickly discover the need to use something to wiggle holes though it so you can pass the wire through the sculpture. This tool will come in useful at many stages of creating a wire sculpture.
We have been selling our Wire bundles https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/667288528/sculpture-wire-bundle-for-a-50cm? so that you can make your own sculptures for years now, and this is a must have tool for anyone who practicing wire sculpting.
My father Robin Wight who makes the large fairy sculptures which can be seen at Trentham Gardens in the UK has shared his method of making the sculptures for years. If you have bought his Book ‘The Art of FantasyWire’ ( https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/653529109/the-art-of-fantasywire-by-robin-wight ) or watched his How To’ tutorial videos on YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCivp4n7vjN26DgqYmXocuTg ) then you will have heard him mention a sculpture piercing tool. This is a tool that he found he needed whilst creating his wire sculptures, so he made one!
