Magnificent beauty of horses made of wires
Connie Adam, a self-taught sculptor from Norfolk in the UK, creates amazing statues of her own horses among a variety of other animals from galvanised wire and metal products. Adam captures the resemblance of all different breeds, some life-size and many others relatively small, while at the same time portraying the mobility and active spirit of the magnificent creatures.
The aspiring artist decided to continue exploring with the medium after trying out a modeling kit from wire artist Robin Wight. Adam tells My Contemporary Met, “I enjoy the mix of metal being firm enough just to contribute its own design while being flexible enough to guide.” The designer has always had a passion and regard for the magnificent creature, which is why she enjoys creating sculptures of horses.
“Connie was horse obsessive when she was little, and a lot of that carries over into maturity,” Adam acknowledges. “My family is blessed to have a couple old mares with distinct personalities, which makes me want to create statues with existence. They are also highly distinct, solid creatures, which makes modeling them a genuine pleasure!
