Fairies invoke thoughts of fantasy. They help you escape the real world for a moment and are generally associated with good things. Fairies are nice. I make wire fairies because I love the whole creative process of designing and building something nice and delicate yet are made from hard industrial materials.
There is no greater feeling of satisfaction than to stand back and say to yourself “I made that” and be proud of it. The technical term for it is “personal agency” and it’s sadly lacking in the modern world of vicarious living. It’s so rewarding as an artist to be able to share what I do and how I do it with the world.
FantasyWire is a family business supplying both Fairy Fans and Art Students with what a little touch of magic.

What is a KIT?

A KIT give you the chance to MAKE your OWN wire sculpture. It contains everything you need to have a go at making your own 8 inch wire fairy sculpture.

The starter kits contain:

-A preformed skeleton - so you don’t have to work out all the dimensions of limbs etc.

-3 types of wire - thick for building out the figure, thin for adding skin and detail and finally some thin springy wire for making wings. It contains more than enough wire so you don’t have to worry about running out.

-Pliers - for bending and cutting the wire.

- Detailed instructions - Taking you through each stage or the wire faire sculpting process stage by stage.

The resulting fairy figures stand about 8 inches high.
