Rhiannon Thomas

Wire sculpture,cards and paintings.

Rhiannon is a wire and fine artist. She is particularly interested in the variety of shapes and forms that plants and flowers make. Rhiannon then creates her own interpretation of them using ink, pencil and oil pastel.

Having studied Textile Crafts at University, her paintings have a textile feel about them as they could be translated to a woven or embroidered piece. Rhiannon also creates wire sculptures using traditional  techniques such basketry and braiding, to produce 3D textiles. She makes the sculptures with wire, cotton, paper yarn and occasionally old musical instrument strings. rhi snowdrop3(1)They are displayed both in box frames and on small wooden plinths. Each material responds differently creating an exciting process and a lovely outcome. Once framed, light plays an important role with the shadows that the sculptures create looking like a line drawing behind the sculpture.

Rhiannon's wire sculptures are sold at Cambridge Contemporary Crafts and her cards at Cambridge Contemporary Art.
