WWWillard Wigan
Tuesday 17 November
Willard Wigan's micro-sculptures are so minute that they are only visible through a microscope! Each piece commonly sits within the eye of a needle, or on a pin head. The personal sacrifices involved in creating such pieces are inconceivable to most. Willard's artwork has been described as "the eighth wonder of the world", and he has been honoured by HM The Queen with an MBE. You can view some of his incredible work here.
