Ruth Jensen’s Abstract Twisted Wire Bird Sculptures

Designer Ruth Jensen based in St Paul, Minnesota, uses wire to create these cute 3-D sculptures of birds.

Ruth doesn’t use moulds or patterns so each bird is unique. She cuts individual lengths of wire, twists them together with her hands and keeps twisting and adding wires until the bird is finished. The process is lengthy and even a small bird can take many hours. To ensure her birds are recognisable, Ruth references photos and bird books. Check out a short film to see the process here.

You can see more of Ruth’s creations over on her Flickr set and her wire sculptures are available for purchase in her Etsy shop Sparkflight.
