Story of Oz Wire Art

My name is Nicholas and I have been 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.

In 2016 I relocated to the island of Shikoku, Japan, where I live with my wife of 14 years.

I have since renamed my shop on Etsy from Oz Wire Art, to Oz Wire Art Japan.

On a cultural note, 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 Japan.

Thank you for visiting my shop and sharing my vision.
