Artist's description:

Out of all the different animal sculptures I make I find horses the hardest to achieve satisfaction. They are a complex machine of a creature yet have the grace and delicacy of a feather.
This one is inspired by a friend's retired racehorse who is the gentlest horse I've ever known.
He is made by twisting and weaving individual strands of various gauge non-tarnish silver-plated copper wire to slowly and gradually build up the form. I never know the stance that a piece is going to take until the personality and character have developed during the making, then they decide their own position.
Wire is a perfect material to portray a horse. Both are known for strength, but by using the wire to weave intricate shapes and patterns that allow light and shadows to alter the appearance, it suggests the delicacy and fragility that is part of any animal.

Materials used:

Non-tarnish silver-plated wire.
