The Story of (Australia) Oz Wire Art

WE HAVE MOVED to our new shop, Oz Wire Art Japan: www.etsy.com/shop/OzWireArtJapan Please visit us at our new shop and remember to update your bookmarks.
We're still on Etsy, so please stop by and take a look.

My name is Nicholas and I first became interested in working with wire since my first viewing of a wire sculpture at the home of a friend.

I have always enjoyed working with my hands and I especially love the challenges presented in creating a piece of art from a single strand of wire. 

Unluckily in 2011, I experienced a stroke that left me with functional limitations of both strength and endurance.  Afterward, wire sculpture formed a major portion of my rehabilitation.

It took almost a year of steady work to finally be able to produce a finished bicycle again. 

On a special note, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my friend, Jaime, who first taught me the basics of creating a work of art from a simple strand of wire, and also that you need to persevere when the going gets tough. 

The "Oz" in Oz Wire Art derives its spelling from the Australian tendency to shorten names. Aussies often shorten of the name of Australia to Aus, yet with the pronunciation as if it's spelled Oz.

So as you can see: Australia = Aus = Oz = Oz Wire Art.

Thank you for visiting my shop and sharing my vision.
