Italian artist Mattia Trotta creates the most amazing wire sculptures we’ve ever seen. The iron sculpture master begins the whole process with an outline drawing. Because he doesnâ€™t use any welding or brazing, and works entirely with his hands, the hard manual labor is often preceded by a design on paper.
Trotta then creates a skeleton of steel wrapped around with wire. One by one, wires are tangled and compacted to fill-in the casing. Once complete, the iron sculptures are soaked in acid to prevent corrosion and to extract the natural shades of color from the wires.
