Alice Zilelian Barton is a self-taught wire artist sculptor based in New Jersey. A graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology and The Institute of Culinary Education, Alice has been making art with wire for over 20 years. At an early age, she developed an interest in sculpture through the work of Auguste Rodin. Exploring different mediums, she found creating with wire was her true passion. Her whimsical sculptures are a unique style of drawing in wire, sometimes expanding into three dimensions. Her artwork has evolved from simple flat forms in steel wire to intricately detailed pieces with colored wire and beaded accents. Every sculpture is handmade and one of a kind. Her inspiration ranges from nostalgic childhood characters to animals, scenes from nature, and abstract geometric shapes and patterns. Born of Armenian heritage in Queens, NY, her family's culture also inspires her art.
