* - Innovators and Pioneers in the Field of Contemporary Wire Sculpture

*Laura J. Antebi World Traveler and wire sculpture pioneer Laura J Antebi endeavours to unite art with the spiritual essence through the sense of the transitory; to create figures that convey spontaneity and freedom of movement. Currently based in a Scottish castle, Laura continues to combine travel and study with her creative process.

*Ruth Asawa, creator of elegant, abstract organic wire forms and installations of huge geometric wire sculptures, tied or crocheted on a monumental scale with a strong sense of topological awareness. She began her explorations with wire in the 1950s; her works are frequently exhibited in museums. asawa is a dedicated art activist, inspiring young children to adopt an innovative approach to using found materials.

William Ashley-Norman of the UK has worked chicken wire for about 17 years. "My father aked me to clear some wire from the garden, this promptly turned up in my bedroom as a dragon. I think it was something to do with avoiding revision." The only tools used are a small pair of bent nosed pliers, and a pair of spring loaded wire cutters; he created a series of mannequins for a Covent Garden shop.

*Stan Bennett Creator of incredibly complex "marble machines" and other kinetic wire sculptures, wire pioneer Stan Bennett maintains his kinetic wire sculpture studio in Ferndale, CA.

*Elizabeth Berrien, "Godmother of Wire", pioneered the field of contemporary wire sculpture since 1968. She creates museum quality wire sculptures of people, animals and objects from complexly interlaced single strands of wire. Berrien invented her rare technique, a hybrid of lace-making, topology, plane geometry and structural engineering. Her works are in museums, galleries, airports, parks and zoos, and are collected internationally. Founder of Wire Sculpture International, the worldwide guild of wire sculptors. Her wire sculpture demonstrations helped trigger a new generation of wire sculptors.


*Giles Blunden is considered Britain's foremost authority on weaving wire by hand. He owns James Gilbert & Son, the London-based wire weaving company originally established in 1780, which produces wire products from hand-woven brass mesh for fire screens to brass mesh coverings for the arrow slits in the Tower of London.

*Lee Bonticou mixes wire with other media to create virtual explosions of line, tension and energy. Starting in the 1950's and 1960's, she addresses wire sculpture to create constellation-like mixed media constructions and semi-abstract forms.
*Johanne Brunet of Canada, a wire jeweller, creates crocheted, lacelike wearable art with a lively delicacy of design.
