A Copper Wire Wrapped Fish Design
Sharing with you the complete design process of the copper wire koi carp sculpture. View over the different stages from sketches, to wire-work, patina finish and the final polish. Each of our wire ornament designs uses a free-form technique to create a wire frame that provides stability to the structure. The profile wire shape becomes the central point for the body, head, fins and tail to wrap around. This wire fish sculpture can be bought from our online shop.
The first and most important length of wire, the profile line.
Straight out of the patina solution, with a dark mat black finish, ready for polishing.
