This extraordinary sculpture was created by, Ivan Lovatt, using galvanised chicken wire, a medium that lends itself to sensitivity and delicacy. By layering, twisting, shaping and pinning this very ordinary medium, Ivan creates both abstract and realistic representations. The wire, with its hexagonal shapes can provide a good deal of structural integrity, and with layering and using different gauges of wire it is possible to create very large sculptures.
