This is from my 'Mother & Child's range of sculptures. Is is made by twisting and weaving individual strands of various gauge non-tarnish silver-plated wires to gradually build up the shape of a proud Highland Cow mother and her cute and curious calf.
It is inspired by the cattle that roam the moorlands near my home in the Yorkshire Dales.
The pieces are strong and sturdy yet the intricate weave of the wirework suggests delicacy and fragility.
I also sculpt using copper wire and each piece is handmade and unique, with the character of the animal being allowed to determine the end result.
The measurement given is for the mother cow.
