Who doesn’t love a fluffy little baby alpaca?
This one doesn’t need feeding, and he has been made using stainless-steel wire, so he is completely happy outdoors all year round.
Every tuft of fluff has been individually made, giving him a wonderful texture, and colour has been added by heating the wire to bring out subtle hues.
Approx height. cm and length approx. cm
Collection from my studio in West Sussex, or I am happy to deal with your courier if you wish to arrange one. ( I can give you details of an excellent courier if you need them).
Hi I’m Gill and I have a love of nature and a need to create. I originally honed my wire skills over many years making jewellery and tiaras, but I had a yearning to make larger more expressive pieces, that importantly had a life of their own.
I work in my Sussex based studio, using mainly stainless steel wire straight from the roll and this means that my sculptures are suitable for both indoors and out. With the outdoor pieces in particular I like to make larger, life-sized pieces and this led to my learning to weld in order to create a support framework. A bit of a change from my tiara days!
I take each sculpture through a creative process, which inevitably leads to a stage where I’m unhappy with my progress. Fortunately, this is usually closely followed by a breakthrough, when a spark of life takes hold of the piece, and a new creature is born!
As well as the pieces you see here in my shop, I also take on commission work and I’d be happy to discuss your requirements. You can email me directly at [email protected]
