Hand-sculpted figurative art made out of a single sheet of bronze or steel mesh.
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.

’BATHERS’ 2017

This sculpture was made as part of a special collaborative exhibition “Shadows of the Past” with Raccanello LePrince and the image/composition for the sculpture was taken from an antique Venetian ceramic plate and transposed into a relief panel in bronze mesh for the exhibition.

Most of my sculptures are made from a single rectangle of wiremesh with nothing added and nothing taken away. The material is simply transformed.
