Hand-sculpted figurative art made from a single wire sheet
A ’Begbie sculpture’ is never moulded – a unique semi-transparent artwork with its own character.
Each wire sculpture is modelled using very own (self-made) tools and ’fixed’ joining each wire intersection, so that the artwork is robust and stable for posterity.

Most of my sculptures are made from a single rectangle of wire-mesh with nothing added and nothing taken away. The material is simply transformed. All works of art are a transformation of basic materials into something which has meaning.
