Three Dimensional Line Drawings and Mobiles

Here on Etsy I am better known as BlueDogRose, the "bunny painter" (though I do paint other things!). I love sculpting as much as I love painting.

I have been using wire to sculpt since childhood, but really began to explore it more in college. I have a BFA degree in sculpture, and my senior show included several large wire pieces.

I made my first bird in the early 1990's. I love the idea of starting with a line then using that line to draw in three dimensions until there is a free standing sculpture. The finished sculptures have a strength and presence, while drawing you in from every angle (pun intended).

I have made all sorts of creatures; horses, dogs, elephants, deer...the list goes on, but birds remain my favorite. I also like to make kinetic pieces, mobiles and sculpture that says something (like the WORD birds). I often incorporate recycled, found objects and findings in my work, as well as concrete creations.

Thanks for visiting!

Most sculpture is intended for indoor use only, unless stated in the description. Some metal sculptures may rust if exposed to the elements or left in a humid environment. A clear spray varnish may be applied for protection outside, however the artist assumes no responsibility for rust due to exposure. Annealed wire is not food safe, and these sculptures are not intended to be displayed with food.
