Wire is an extraordinarily capable sculptural material. Wire sculpture refers to the creation of sculpture or jewelry (sometimes called wire wrap jewelry) out of wire. The use of metal wire in jewelry dates back to the 2nd Dynasty in Egypt and to the Bronze and Iron Ages in Europe. In the 20th century, the works of Alexander Calder, Ruth Asawa, and other modern practitioners developed the medium of wire sculpture as an art form.

UK based Artist and Sculptor Richard Stainthorp use wire as his main material for his incredible sculptures. Stainthorp has been making these wire sculptures as far back as 1996 after graduating in Fine Art and specialising in sculpture. These are a few of his works.
