Pink Unicorn by WireArtInk
Pink Unicorn, a photo by WireArtInk on Flickr.

This magical creature was born from the many requests I've received and is an originally designed by myself. The quizzical pastel pink wire wrapped unicorn measures 4x3x8 inches (LxWxH). and has sea blue, green eyesThe unicorn is constructed with stainless steel wire painted with enamel paint It is protected with a clear coat sealant. Glass beads are used for the eyes. The horn is a handmade polymer clay bead painted with silver enamel paint.
The structure is solid enough to with stand many falls. It will bend when direct pressure is put it but will easily go back into place without breaking.

About Me

Antonia Hansen has been making both fine art and crafts all her life. She grew up in a blue collar family that loved to craft. She came from a long line of crocheters dating back to her Great Grandmother. She was exposed to fine art by her Dad's mom on the other side of the family. As a result she walks the fine line between art and craft. Antonia has a Bachelors degree in Music and BA in Art from San Francisco State University. She has worked in several mediums which include: graphite, ink, water color, acrylic paint, oil paint, charcoal, dry pastels, ceramics, paper-mache, jewelry design, knitting, and crocheting. She began working with wire six years ago. While doodling a lot during meetings at work a co-worker suggested that the drawings really lent themselves to wire. That little comment was just the thing to set fire to an idea and push the wire work into motion.
