Kendra Haste creates the most incredible, life-like animal scultpures using layers of painted galvanized wire atop steel armature.

Kendra Haste is a contemporary animal sculptor who uses galvanized wire as her medium to create large and small lifelike creatures. From the muscular body of a lion to the delicate hairs on the monkey’s neck, you will be amazed at how much detail she weaves with what most people
would consider plain chicken wire.

“No other material I have ever
used has been able to suggest the sense of movement and life, of contour
and volume, the contrasts of weight and lightness, of solidity and
transparency – values that I find in my natural subjects. It is the
perfect medium, inviting continuing exploration and challenge,” Haste says.

Some of her works until 2021 at the Tower of London.
