Maker's bio

I am a wire sculpture artist and teacher of my craft. I have been making wire sculpture with tin copper wire for over 30 years. Soldering skills are the key to my sculpture work. 30 years of working with heavy duty and very fine wire, enables me to make a wide range of wire sculptures from 14 gauge wire down to 36 gauge. With welding and many other fabrications skills I am able to make and teach a wide variety of sculptures in a wide variety of materials in fine detail.

Sally Newton reviewed: One to One - full day 6 hours , Introduction to artistic welding metal sculpture with Roger Russell

"Great fun for the day. Going through Arc TIG and MIG welding techniques. I took my own MIG welder along and Roger showed me exactly how to use mine as well as all of his equipment which was slightly different. This is my first time welding but it is a brilliant day for any skill level. "

High Definition wire sculpture responded:

"Thank you Sally, you mastered the Tig welding like a pro . Cant wait to come and play tanks . :) "

"An excellent day full of great tuition. Roger's enthusiasm and clear instructions helped my girlfriend, who had never even held a soldering iron before, realise her vision of a mermaid sculpture come to life before her eyes."

JJ VIncent - Ceramic Animal Sculptor reviewed: One person - Full day 6 hours sculpture/soldering brazing wire forming course, specialising in insects, fairies

"Many thanks, Roger for a very rewarding and inspirational day! The day was entirely designed to fit my particular set of circumstances and requirements. As a long-time ceramic sculptor, I am currently in the process of widening my techniques and materials to include wood, resins and metals. Rather than concentrating a single technique, Roger was able to give me an overview of a wide range of metal-joining techniques, ranging from Arc welding, Mig welding to brazing and soft-soldering. Whilst I was working my way through the introductory exercises, Roger worked his way through testing and reviewing all of my existing tools and equipment and was able to assess those items that were "keepers" and had some worth, and those items that were not safe, or reliable for future use. This, coupled with seeing his brilliant original artworks at close quarters, made the day very inspirational and contributed enormously to getting my metal-joining journey well under way. Looking forward to further, in-depth tuition at a later date."

Karen reviewed: Two People - 6 hours Introduction to welding course

"Roger is very passionate about his craft..he shares so much about the process, he is happy to have photos and videos taken. Lots of opportunities to try the skills and take home rough and ready items. It takes long time to get skilled but I was happy I got to use a range of welding skills and take home a garden stake. Definitely had a great day. Very welcoming and engaging. "
