My name is Andy and I’m an artist/ sculptor based from Manchester UK.  I specialize in creating tree sculptures from strands of wire. I began crafting trees as a therapeutic hobby and gradually developed the craft. With the help of kickstarter and social media I was able to share my work with the world.

The trees are created by twisting strands of wire to create the trunk and branches and then looping it up to create the leafs.  My designs are mainly based off Bonsai trees and use varied types/ gauges of wire. Some sculptures contain hundreds of meters worth of wire and take up to a week to complete.
