This unique and individual wirework sculpture is made by twisting and weaving individual strands of various gauge non-tarnish copper wire to gradually build up the shape and form of a feisty fiery bull. I have tried to capture the strength and movement of these beautiful animals and I feel that this one has his own proud arrogance and character.
I have given him a Spanish name as he has characteristics of the Catalan bull symbol recognisable throughout the world.
I make various wirework animals although cattle have definitely proved the most popular, although the contrast between the slow and steady Highland Cows I make and this powerful machine of an animal could not be greater.
"Toro" is not about sport or fighting, he is a celebration of a magnificent creature that has commanded respect for centuries.
