Michelle Aplin

Michelle is based in Waimate and forms sculptures with wire to create individual pieces in animal, human, plant and mythical form. All are hand-crafted using pliers and cutters with layered galvanized wire of various gauge. Inspiration during the sculpting process allows each creation to develop its own unique characteristics.

“I start with research, looking at pictures, dog anatomy, muscles, muscle tone and things like that…I work out a scale to work from, I get various angles, and then begin.”
