Artistic Wire Mesh Designs

The city of Philadelphia is home to a strong and vibrant art scene. Philadelphia boasts two globally celebrated art collections, one within the walls of Philadelphia Museum of Art and the other at the Barnes Foundation. The City of Brotherly Love also features an eclectic collection of smaller galleries located in the Old City section of the city.

And it was within these galleries, initially, that artists had begun to rely on Edward J. Darby & Son, Inc. for their wire mesh designs. Over the past twenty-five years, many artists across the country have purchased various wire mesh items to create sculptures and wire mesh designs.

Wire mesh is an extremely versatile industrial product, which artists often manipulate both in terms of color and shape. Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper and Copper alloy wire meshes, like Bronze and Brass, are popular selections due to their unique characteristics.

Edward J. Darby & Son, Inc., recommends researching other artists and prototyping various wire mesh specifications.


“In our time there are many artists who do something because it is new; they see their value and their justification in this newness. They are deceiving themselves; novelty is seldom the essential. This has to do with one thing only; making a subject better from its intrinsic nature.”— Henri de Toulouse Lautrec (1864-1901)

“At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.” – Salvador Dali (1904-1989)
