What ever I make I can teach you !!

A high definition wire fairy archer

Hi welcome to my web site.

I am a wire sculpture artist and teacher of my craft. I have been making wire sculpture with tin copper wire for over  30 years. I learnt and practiced my skills working as a protype military avionics electical/mechancal engineer working on Tornado and Urofighter Typhoon wiring assemblies for BEA Systems. I decided to start making and teaching wire sculpture after i was made redundant in 2010.

Soldering skills are the key to my sulpture work. 30 years of working with heavy duty and very fine wire, enables me to make a wide range of wire sculptures from 14 gauge wire down to 36 gauge. With welding and many other fabrications skills I am able to make and teach a wide variety of sculpures in a wide variety of materials in fine detail "High Definition" hence the name. For details of one to one lessons and group lessons, please follow link


The range of sculptures in terms size of sculptures is vast , as you will see in the pictures below , I love the challenge of my micro sculpture, both insects and micro machines made from pocket watch gears and parts . I am always developing new projects and pushing myself to create new complex sculptures.  For more infomation , to book a lesson ,   Please email me at rogerrussell@hotmail.co.uk

Fairy archer in tinned copper wire

7 inch dragon fly, one of my most popular sculptures, its the wire detail in the wings that takes a lot of time and skill. I can teach this in a one day course, to finish the wings will take another day.

This was the first fairy head I made in tin copper wire, each wire is individualy formed and soldered into place. This head is just 25 mm diameter.

50mm wire fairy head. Fairies are the most complex in terms skill and time, this is the most detailed fairy head so far, I am all ways looking to improve my skills.
