Gallery Minerva

A sign in the window gives the following information on the beautiful illuminated figures shown above:
As the creator of this wire sculpting process, the London native, Michael Gard, has made beautiful dancing figures. The process starts with an oil based clay sculpture that is transformed in to wax. He then takes single strands of wire weaving them over the wax sculpture. The wax is melted away in a boiling water bath leaving the wire sculpture intact.
