Chris Moss Wire Sculpture
I’m a maker of birds and beasts, wild and domestic subjects using new and recycled wire and mesh. Subjects range in scale from wrens to life-size horses.
My work has been show-cased for several years at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the Great Yorkshire Show and at the sculpture exhibitions at Marks Hall and Doddington Hall. It has appeared in newspaper articles and in 2018 featured in Landscape magazine.
I’ve worked with clients to deliver site-specific work from a piece of outdoor sculpture for a show garden to more intimate and personal sculptures that commemorate or celebrate a loved one – human or animal. To discuss a commission, please contact me for an informal chat.
In 2015 I was asked to create a flock of Sussex sheep to bring Henry Moore’s pen and ink sketches into 3-dimensions as part of the Henry Moore Foundation’s ‘Back To a Land’ retrospective at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. In 2016 I made a life-size equine sculpture for the World Horse Welfare charity to launch their ‘Invisible Horse’ campaign at Badminton Horse Trials.
I’ve been teaching workshops for the past 15 years. After many years as a practitioner I enjoy passing on my knowledge of tools, techniques and problem-solving. When circumstances allow, workshops will resume – please check my Workshop calendar for details.
