Last year Robin’s work was hugely admired, strangely, especially by men.  We love the delicacy, grace and accuracy of his wire work sculptures and his enthusiasm for bits that are missing…

Why do you work in wire?

I started messing about with the wire from Rioja bottles and making small animals for the children. Then following an inspiration from the amazing work of Alexander Calder I tried using iron wire. The rest is history!

What breed did you first make?

Nell was my first dog! (above)

Why are dogs important to you?

We own a whippet and a lurcher and love hounds generally. I find the lovely lines perfect for the work in wire.

Ever won a rosette? Not you but your dog!

Not yet sadly. Here’s hoping for a big fat one from the Brighton Dog Show!!
