Wire Sculptures by Gary Tiplady

Gary Tipladys Wire Sculptures

Wire art

The 7 ft 3ins Giant makes these model animals, moulded, bashed together with Woven galvanised wire mesh and a hammer. I sometimes have a nibble on the wires to help bend them into shape. It’s my trademark.

I study photographs and my drawings and then sculpt them all together with my massive hands. They really help, the only problem I can’t find gloves to fit. I study designs from books on the internet, but I’ve got everything to build them in my head.

  1. Absolutely love the Bedlington! (having bred them for 30-odd years) I understand there’s a print available of the dog and the Angel of the North – how can I buy one, please? Don’t think I can afford an original sculpture.

    I absolutely love Gary’s work – from the minute I moved into my new workplace in the Freeman Hospital, to the time I became acquainted with Gary.

    I love all of it and want a garden full of diggers!

    Good luck Gary – keep going!

    I saw your West Highland Terrior at the reception of Lumley Castle last weekend. It’s fabulous. How much would one cost (two in fact)?

    Hi Gary
    Could you let me know how much a wire sculpture of the west highland terrier as seen at Jesmond Dene House would cost.

    Hi Gary, just seen your work at St Marys. Are these specially commissioned pieces or do you have an outlet shop somewhere. Can you give an idea of cost for a small dog. Kind regards.

  7. Hi John thanks for your request if you email me your sculpture idea at jawss@garytiplady.co.uk I can give you a price .

    I was at a wedding at St Marys In yesterday and saw the sculptures of the dogs you have there. I was wondering what sort of price range you sell them for? My mother particularly liked the curly haired bedlington terrier (i think thats what it was) and i was hoping to get one for her.

    Many thanks

    I am looking at a tabby type cat at about life size if that’s possible.
    I would appreciate a price to see if it’s within my budget.

    How do I go about purchasing one of you wire art dogs.
    I have a small black and grey Cockerpoo. We also love the westie in Jesmond Dene house. Do you do them to order .

    Saw your wonderful Westie at Jesmond Dean House, what would one cost, and would it ready for Christmas?

    I admired your West Highland Terrier sculpture at Doxford Hall last year – we have a nice photo of our bewildered Westy gazing at it. Most life-like.
    I have just tried to view this item on your website, but cannot find a link to any of the photos. What would a copy cost, please?

    Seen the dogs at jesmond dene… how much does a dog cost, how much is a commission? I especially liked the dog that was crouched, waiting for the ball.
    Thank you
