The book will walk you through;

  • The properties and constraints of working with wire
  • The factors that influence a good design in art
  • How to make a wire skeleton/frame to support your sculpture
  • Basic wire handling techniques
  • Guidelines and insights to help you control proportions (the hardest part of any art)
  • What to do when you start to panic if you think its all going wrong!

Good Art Flows From Good Design

Art is always portrayed as some form of mystery created by the talents given to a lucky few. But good art flows from good design. Design may also be a creative process, but its much easier to apply rules to design. Rules can be followed, and with the aid of some step-by-step design and wire techniques, most people who enjoy crafts should be able to enjoy designing and making their own wire fairy.

Whilst FantasyWire is best know for fairies and dandelions, the book aims to share the underlining principles of design and wire sculpture which could be applied to any sculptural subject. You don’t have to be into fairies to benefit from the contents of this book.

“Fairies invoke thoughts of fantasy. They help you escape the real world for a moment and are generally associated with good things. Fairies are nice. I make wire fairies because I love the whole creative process of designing and build something nice an delicate from hard industrial materials.”

– Robin Wight

“There is no greater feeling of satisfaction than to stand back and say to yourself “I made that” and be proud of it. The technical term for it is “personal agency” and it’s sadly lacking in the modern world of vicarious living. It’s so rewarding as an artist to be able to share what I do and how I do it with the world.”

– Robin Wight
