Here is another of my sculptures which is overdue to be posted…but, it’s better late than never! I’ve become ever-more enthusiastic about decking out my sculptures with embellishments…I love the character and beauty found objects can add to a piece. I’ve been wanting to make a horse whose mane and tail would be chock full of found item goodies, and this is the result.
Blue Roan Gypsy Vanner
– Sculpture measures 10 inches long by 5 1/2 inches tall by 2 1/2 inches wide.
– Made with 17 gauge steel fencing wire, as well as fine wire for detail and attaching embellishments. The ears are brass pieces that I bought in a lot, and according to the seller, they are over 40 years old. Cool! The mane and tail are made of black chain. I added many, many things to the chain to add detail, though. As you may notice, this horse has a bit of a rose theme. There are at least seven, perhaps more, roses in the mane and tail, as well as metal feathers, leaves, beads, and other things throughout the masses of chains.
It was fun to make this one a bit gaudy. 🙂
Thank you for looking!
