How it's made
Nini starts off the creative process with a pen and paper and a dose of inspiration. Coming up with an idea is easy but creating a design that uses only a single piece of wire can be challenging. Each design is influenced by Nini's surroundings, interests, trends, and past design experience. What starts as a quick doodle in a sketchbook is cleaned up and transformed into a minimal single line design that utilizes loops, bends, twists and lots of white space.
After the design phase comes the wiring process. All wire art pieces available on With Nini are handmade with love, sore fingers, and the occasional assistance of pliers. Oh, and plenty of patience. Nini brings her art to life by guiding the wire through curves, twists, and loops based on the original design. The characteristics of the wire assure no two pieces are identical, meaning each finished product is truly unique.
Ready to Adopt
To prep it for its new home, each wire art piece is displayed in a custom sustainable wood frame. Fixed securely behind the glass, the wire art pieces do not lay completely flat. Unlike two-dimensional art, the raised wire allows for unique shadows to be cast under certain lighting conditions. After a final inspection, the wire art is now ready for its journey to its forever home!
