Drawing in Air

David Begbie transforms a light-weight steel or bronze wire mesh spectacularly into a dynamic three-dimensional figurative form.

A "Begbie" is never moulded.
Each wire mesh sculpture is unique with its own character, hand-made out of a single sheet of bronze or steel mesh.

Sculpture and Shadow Projection

The introduction of lighting is an integral part of a particular composition and has the most remarkable result.
The use of projected shadows creates an optical fusion of image and object.

Master of his Medium Wire Mesh

Edward Lucie-Smith

The Right Choice


This website features examples of available sculpture. Ask for further images of a particular sculpture in high resolution.

Or ask for your desired size and subject of a sculpture - we provide photos and details of further examples and/or suggest a commission.

Sculpture Simulation


If you wonder how a "Begbie" sculpture would fit in your environment, we offer to superimpose a sculpture suggestion into a photo of your envisaged space - just send a snapshot: email.
Each work is an entity which has a far greater physical presence than any solid object could possibly have, because it has the power to suggest that it doesn’t exist.
