A great gift for cat lovers, this wire sculpture was handcrafted by local artist Josh Cotè. Using only needle-nosed pliers and some innovative techniques he has developed, the wire in this sculpture was painstakingly manipulated, wrapped, and woven to create the desired structure.
About Josh Coté
Since childhood, Josh has always been surrounded by art and artists. His grandparents were both oil painters, and his father was a watercolorist. He grew up ‘on the road’ in the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, going to art festivals along the East Coast with his family. Josh found inspiration in authors like Lewis Carroll, H.G. Wells, and Dr. Seuss, which drew him into what he calls “a magical dream world.”
After studying painting and drawing at the University of Michigan’s School of Art & Design, Josh became a self-taught sculptor. He’s known for his unique and fanciful wire sculptures of creatures both wild and mythical. Some of Josh’s sculptures take months and miles of wire to complete!
