Joy Gray


Joy Gray creates sculptures which capture the wild resilient nature of urban birds and windswept trees. Predominately working in wire, using various metals, finishes and techniques, Joy uses the wire as the sculptural interpretation of the drawn line.

 She graduated from the Arts College at the University of Ulster in 2007, specialising in sculpture, often with textile elements.

“The Crow builds it's nest high up in the branches of trees, they appear vulnerable so fragile and high up in the finer branches. These delicate structures are preciously nurturing the next generation of adaptors and survivors.”


Each of Joy’s trees are built by hand, adding branch to branch like a bird building a nest. .
