Here at Earth Balance Craft, designer Nicola enjoys making nature’s creatures from raw copper wire. Armed just with her drawings and sketches, her designs evolve using 2D and 3D elements to bring them to life. Copper wire is soft and malleable to use, and when knitted together in a cage like design, provides the strength and integrity needed to frame her designs. Although as with the real life creatures, if you sat on one it would get squashed. Often she photographs her work as she goes, which she has shared here on her website:
