South Korean sculptor Byeong Doo Moon unveiled a new stainless steel sculpture as part of Sculpture by the Sea 2014 earlier this month in Sydney. The intricately welded peacock is titled “Our memory in your place” and is a stylistic companion to Moon’s 2011 sculpture, a deer with an unwieldy set of antlers that resembles tree limbs. The annual sculpture event is now in its 18th year and runs through November 9th. You can see plenty more photos of this year’s participants on their website. (via Visual News)

Using nothing but wire, sculptor Clive Madison creates tangled trees that grow from wooden bases into dense clusters of leaves and branches. Each piece is made by hand without glue or solder, using single strands of wire that start at the base and terminate at the top. You can see many more pieces on his website, and several are available through Lee Champman Gallery. (via Ghost in the Machine)

UK artist Celia Smith works with various forms of wire to create delicate bird sculptures and installations. While somewhat abstract in appearance, the pieces are almost lifelike in form and scale as if drawn with a pen. You can see over 50 different pieces by the artist on her website, and catch an interview over on Ideas in the Making. Not shy about her process or methods, she also offers wire sculpting workshops.

U.K. artist Michelle Mckinney examines the contrast of manmade materials with forms of nature in her ethereal installations of leaves, seeds, and butterflies formed from handcut woven metal. The artist cuts each shape from copper, brass, or steel mesh which is then colored and assembled into the forms seen here. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and in her portfolio.

Korean artist Seung Mo Park (previously) continues to amaze with his astonishingly crafted figurative sculptures made with tightly wrapped layers of aluminum wire based on fiberglass forms. The works shown here are part of the Brooklyn-based artist’s Human series where he recreates the delicate wrinkles and folds of clothing as well as the sinuous musculature of the human body in metallic layers remeniscent of tree rings. He’s also sculpted bicycles, musical insturments and other forms as part of his Object series. (via My Modern Met)

There are some fantastic sequences in this brief stop motion clip by Victor Haegelin of Patator Prod accompanied by music from Professor Kliq. Haegelin relies entirely on bent wire and paper to create everything you see and it’s amazing how fluid all the individual wire strands become when animated like this, wish it went a bit longer.
