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.

"The image of a palm or hand is a symbol of prosperity and growth; a benevolent gesture in its physical form and in its language designed to speak optimistically. of welcome both economic and cultural growth- “its getting better all the time”.
Reflecting an aspect of the human character it brings together bridging historical, geographical and cultural divides.
Its simplicity suggests partnership, agreement, cooperation and friendship as well as industry, manual dexterity and indeed charity.

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