Wire Tree

Art-Imagined by cbj specialises in creating unique and stunning wire tree sculptures and drawings.

Hello, I'm Christine!

My name is Christine Barbara James and I live in Hampshire,  England.

Since childhood, art has been a major passion in my life. In particular, nature in all its wondrous glory, and has always fascinated me. As I get older, this fascination only deepens, as I feel I have a special affinity with trees. My art has developed greatly from this love. I have drawn, and now sculpt with wire, abstracts of trees. These impressions come from my imagination, allowing me to interpret the bounty found all around us - creating unique pieces of art.

The wire sculptures that I create are hand-crafted, I then mount them on a variety of materials, depending on what best suits each individual sculpture. Among the materials used for this are; wood, flint, slate, crystals. Where possible, I use recycled materials, including pieces of locally-sourced wood which I then refine, shape then and finally polish and seal.

I also work closely along side clients who require bespoke trees. Creating these trees with them from start to finish is an exciting and challenging time for us both. I love doing this as it makes me think outside the box.

All of my intricate pieces of artwork represent a labour-of-love, and take time to create and perfect. Please take the time to study my work. Any feedback is gratefully received.

Thank you for your time. If you wish to contact me, you may do so via the following:

Kind Words from the Kindest Clients

I first approached Christine about a commission piece for my husband as an anniversary gift having seen some of her work on MadeMe. She could not have been more helpful or accommodating when I changed my mind and mixed up the design. I was kept up to date throughout the whole design and creation process, with regular photos and videos and constant checking that I was happy with the way things were turning out. I genuinely could not have been happier with the outcome - it was exactly as I’d imagined and completely captured what I was trying to achieve. I cannot recommend Christine and her workmanship enough. Absolutely fantastic from start to delivery.

Id just like to say a BIG thank you Christine......Having originally purchased one of your smaller trees for a friends ‘special occasion’  (which she was absolutely overjoyed with). Off the back of that I ordered a commission  piece from you for myself and...I LOVE it ! It’s sits in pride of place in my lounge.My friends are all asking where i got it and am sure you will be hearing from some of them real soon.If i’m ever in the market again for a bespoke gift i will be sure to check out your website.

I first became aware of Christine's artwork when I saw one of her drawings at the house of a friend. I now have several of her drawings, and one of her framed wire sculptures. I love the detail in her work, and the individuality of each piece. I think her work is stunning, and am particularly impressed that Christine kept me involved with the creation of the wire sculpture - sending me updates (including photographs) of its progress. Christine was very accommodating to any of my suggestions. I couldn't recommend her more.

Christine does such amazing work. She kept me updated with my tree's progress consistently and I loved watching the tree form from the ground up. So much creativity and attention to detail. I absolutely love my custom tree!
