Who we are
We are a family business that make and sell Fantasy related wire/metal pieces of art and products.
The whole concept came from my Father Robin, who created and sculpts the wire fairies sculptures. You may have seen some of his sculptures at Trentham Gardens in Staffordshire. It was while mending a fence that the idea of wire as a sculptural medium came about. Wire is perfect for the amateur sculptor as it doesn’t require any welding or special processes, and is virtually limitless in what you can produce. It’s like metal clay. All you need is a coil of wire, a pair of pliers and your imagination.
My wife Justine and I (Adam) create and sell the Fairy Kits. They are ideal starter kit for anyone looking to try their hand at wire sculpture or a great gift for anyone who enjoys crafting. The preformed skeleton included within the kit is all in proportion for you already, so just simply adapt it to whichever fairy pose you wish to sculpt and apply the wire as instructed by the manual. There are three types of wire for you to use; thick for building out the figure, thin for adding the ‘skin/detail’ and finally springy wire to create your fairies wings.
“Fairies invoke thoughts of fantasy. They help you escape the real world for a moment and are generally associated with good things. Fairies are nice. I make wire fairies because I love the whole creative process of designing and build something nice an delicate from hard industrial materials.”

“There is no greater feeling of satisfaction than to stand back and say to yourself “I made that” and be proud of it. The technical term for it is “personal agency” and it’s sadly lacking in the modern world of vicarious living. It’s so rewarding as an artist to be able to share what I do and how I do it with the world.”
