Bridget Baker

Bridget Baker makes small animals from galvanized wire, which are then coloured with enamel paints. Working from drawings and photographs, any vertebrate animal can be tackled – fish, frogs, reptiles, birds or mammals, although most popular seem to be farm and domestic animals, particularly people’s individual pets. The enjoyment of their creation comes from making them as realistic as possible and from capturing their characters with the minimum of lines.
