wire sculpture

"I was alone in the world or so I thought for many years working with wire... I started with wire in the 60s when there wasn't much published about wire working."

"I have been working with wire since.....1972... I guess..4th grade... I thought I was the only wire person around... "

"I have been longing for this kind of guild for a long time..."

"I did not realize the size of the community of wire artists."
In 2004 Elizabeth Berrien founded Wire Sculpture International, the worldwide guild of wire sculptors. This guild is still in the formative stages - we're still accepting submissions to our first Wire Sculpture Directory. During 2005 we hope to launch our web site, and eventually attain our non-profit status.

The Mission of Wire Sculpture International

to create and maintain a web Directory of international wire sculptors

to create and maintain a web site to fulfill as many aspects of our mission as possible

to enable wire sculptors to find, identify and communicate with each other

to gain greater visibility, credibility, prestige and respect for wire sculpture as a medium

to create and/or increase standards of quality and workmanship within the medium (design, durability, etc) (define student, amateur & professional status, etc)

to promote the furtherance of the medium

to conduct specific promotion to museums, fine art galleries, etc to improve their view of wire sculpture as a medium (traveling exhibits, juried shows, etc)

to research and document the history of the medium while 20th century pioneers and innovators are still living

to create a wire sculpture reference library

to share wire sculpture techniques

to explore applications of creative wire sculpture technique to industrial applications

to document the diversity and evolution of emerging techniques within the medium

to create publications about wire sculpture, including textbooks on "how to"

to create wire sculpture workshops for educators to encourage "open-ended" wire sculpture classes.

To create scholarships and other awards for promising wire sculptors and students

to promote the personal and professional well-being of wire sculptors including

to provide group/volume opportunities/discounts in insurance, merchant services, advertising, promotion (web design, etc) workshops on marketing and other business skills, bulk/group buying, conventions, exhibits, etc
