Hayley Jones – Wire Sculptor 

Hayley is a self-taught artist who over recent years has evolved from a painter to wire-sculptor. Working in her garden studio which is situated in her very own wildlife garden is the perfect place to create as she takes inspiration from the fauna in the natural world. Wildlife is close to Hayley’s heart. As well as supporting local wildlife rescue centres through her work, Hayley can often be found rescuing toads, newts and hedgehogs on her local patch.

Hayley uses a variety of single strand wires, including copper, steel and aluminium to construct intricate animal and bird forms and then mounts them on to all sorts of interesting found objects, such as old gates, water troughs, weathered driftwood and reclaimed wood which she sources while exploring the local countryside. Sometimes
these objects can be the spark of an idea for a specific piece, other times, the bird or animal is the starting point.

Hayley’s wire sculptures have proved very popular and invitations to exhibit at prestigious events have led to her work being sold both nationally and internationally. She has also exhibited at the Bristol Botanical Gardens and taken part in two events held by Friends of the Garden in Wiltshire and takes part in North Somerset Arts Week and other local exhibitions.
