Norfolk-based UK artist Connie Adam is a sculptor who is well-known for her ability to bend and handle galvanized metal wire that lets her create some very incredible and detailed animal sculptures.

The artist’s sculptures vastly vary in size, as some of the sculptures are more than life-sized and are able to hold the full weight of a human being. Her most recent project revolved around making a life-sized sculpture of a horse that is able to hold a person on top of it, and let’s just say the results are impressive!

The artist told Bored Panda a little bit about how she became a wire sculptor.

"Honestly, I was looking for an income I could make from home! Paired with seeing works of really talented wire artists, I gave it a go and am fortunate to be able to mix it with my interest in animals (especially horses, as all of you can see!)"

Though the wire sculptor’s most recent projects revolve around making wired horses, she also makes other types of sculptures too. By scrolling through the list, you will be able to see some wired squirrels, dogs, chickens, and even kangaroos!

We asked the artist what sparked her interest in wire sculpting in the first place.

“I actually found a very timely post by the talented wire sculptor, Robin Wight, while racking my brains for a career that I would enjoy and could do remotely. Wight sells a 'taster' sculpting kit and after his supportive words of my first try, off I went!”

Though wire art in itself seems like hard and time-consuming work already, there are other challenges one might take into consideration too.

“On the business side, I find the self-marketing hard. In some way, it feels very unnatural to me. On the physical side of things, the bigger sculptures require real brute force and the smaller ones lead to a fair few plier injuries. All worth it in the end, though!”

We asked the talented sculptor what is the best thing about being a wire artist.

“I might sound big-headed but… I back my pieces, I love them! And I love when others appreciate the same things I do, especially when it comes to pieces I've made. My favorite moment so far was a young man with no sight took great care tracing a giraffe with his hands (not that we had a chance to discuss the piece yet) and telling me how realistic it was. Way to give a compliment!”

Connie also told us about the most enjoyable parts of the whole creative process.

“Creating an obvious character or presence is currently the unbeaten factor of sculpting I enjoy the most. It's always my aim for the pieces to spur someone's imagination into what the little squirrel might be doing, or where the trotting horse might be going.”

Though most of the artist’s work revolved around making horse sculptures, Connie also mentioned that she enjoys making other types of animal sculptures too.

“I enjoy animals in general, particularly ones with key features such as defined muscles, big ears, or flowing manes!”

We also asked about the average time it takes to produce one wired sculpture... and quite frankly, the artist’s answer left us speechless!“

How many hours they take... Many! My biggest piece 'Macmorland' took approximately 1,200 hours, while a life-sized spaniel should take about 40 (if all goes according to plan). Smaller also doesn't necessarily mean less time, because it depends on the details needed.”
