Hi everyone, Well, you may have seen a glimpse of this horse in my Art Show post, but I thought I would give the sculpture its own post. This is one of the first times I have combined black and silver wire to create a color combination in wire sculpture. I rather like the effect and plan to do more like this. Originally, I was going to make an all black horse, but the black wire (dark annealed wire) is sort of slick and extra flexible, so it does not hold form as well as my usual steel wire. In the end, I had to use black wire more as an embellishment than for the foundation.
One of the more difficult parts of this sculpture was finding chain in the right brownish-black color to go with the dark wire. I did find some though, and I am glad for that because this horse needed a pretty mane and tail. I added a feather embellishment to the mane because this somehow looked like an Indian horse.
– Made with 17 gauge steel wire (silver in color) and 16 gauge dark annealed wire (black color), as well as various chains (some black, some silver), and embellishments.
– Measures 7 &1/2 inches tall by 8 inches long by 3 inches wide.
I hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking!
