The Story of (Australia) Oz Wire Art Japan

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.

The "Oz" in Oz Wire Art Japan 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.
