Celia Smith is an artist who draws with wire, as others draw with pencil. For her, creating sculptures out of wire is like drawing in three dimensions. Birds are her main inspiration; capturing their movement and character is her primary concern. She finds that wire has a spontaneity that can give her sculptures a feeling of life and energy.
The majority of Celia’s sculptures are of domestic and native British birds. She aims to capture not only their shape but also their movement and character. A lot of time is spent drawing and studying the birds and often, small wire studies and life-size pieces are made directly in front of the subject.

Spent yesterday lounging on the Brig at Filey watching seabirds. Your birds take me straight back there, capturing the poise and essence of these beautiful creatures. Using wire is such a great way to emphasise both their strength and fragility.
