Mesmerizing The Wire-Sculptures By Martin Debenham

"Sculptures include improvisation pieces that have spontaneously evolved into figurative and abstract forms."

Martin Debenham , a British artist, although living in the countryside of Dorset, he was able to create the sculptures of wire with intricate details and very beautiful.

Debenham, admitted he did not take a special class to be able to make the wire sculptures, but it all started when he was a hat-maker in 2008.

Now Debenham invites anyone who is interested in entering his world through art scholarships and training so that more and more artists are involved in this art of wire. If you are interested, you can really go to the village of Dorset in England to meet Debenham and gain knowledge directly from the experts.

How to make the sculptures, Debenham uses stainless steel wire with diameters between 1.6 mm and 5 mm. He said the wire size was thin enough to be formed with his hands or with pliers and thick enough to be welded by a welder. How confused are you?

To be able to shape it, he uses the same basic method as forming normal clay; the silhouette model looks as accurate as possible and then rotate the piece slightly and repeat. It's hard if not directly practiced so. Forming it is easy but it takes quite a long time. Debenham also made something abstract, complicated but beautiful!

Before going to England, let us see Debenham's works first, below!
