Here it is, the brand new website for WireWood and it marks the first few months of making the artists life my full time career. After five years of creating wire tree sculptures, forming my own bespoke techniques and refining my skills I finally decided to give up being a self-employed electrician and focus all my time on WireWood. I initially started making wire trees after being inspired by an artist who created trees from paper at an exhibition I visited in Devon. The first trees I ever made were entirely for my own enjoyment. As you will see on The Artist page I have a tendancy to put my hand to building anything and have a passion for creative projects. The first few trees led to a commission as a Christmas present and not long after more requests were made and a gallery took an order of 8 trees, selling two in the first two weeks of arrival. From then on I have not looked back and have bespoke pieces in galleries and restaurants as well as being an exhibitor at the Handmade in Britain Show in Kew Gardens, London. All this was acheieved while working full time as an electrician and I am pleased to say I will no longer be rewiring homes but instead creating more twisted wire tree sculptures as a full time artist.
For those who have followed my journey from the beginning I would like to say thank you for your support and interest over the last few years. Watch this space as I have already been experimenting and have plenty of fresh ideas for the future. For anyone new to me and my work you can find plenty of information on me and the work I create within my website and you can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook for all the latest updates of what I am up to. I look forward to interacting with you all more and am excited for what the future will bring.
