Wire is an extraordinarily capable sculptural material - it can at once represent the airy weightlessness of a strand of hair or the taught power of a rigid muscle or rope. It's no surprise, then, that so many sculptors find it to be indispensable for their work.

Owing to the ease with which they can be manipulated, wires can be used to make anything from delicate jewelry to home decorative pieces to large structural pieces. The artists in this list all use wire as their main material for their amazing sculptures, which are perfect examples of just how widely applicable this material is.

We'd like to invite artists from all over the world to share their own pictures of incredible wire art as well. Don’t forget to vote for your favorites, too!
