Welcome To WireRyan.com
My name is Ryan Stimers and my career is making sculptures out of wire.
The majority of sculptures that I do are about the right size to sit in the palm of your hand. They are made
from wire that is .06 inches thick. I also do "Full sized" sculptures, such as the 7 foot corgi shown here,
which is built from .5 inch steel rods.
I began constructing sculptures out of wire when i was 12 years old. For a challenge, I constructed each one from only a single piece. Over the years, I found that the use of a single wire really delights the public. When they browse
my sculptures, I often hear them telling each other with pride, "and he makes them with just one piece!"
On a personal level, the "single piece of wire" technique forces me to do "more with less" and it gives the sculpture
a sense of identity. Instead of making art which is like detailed oil paintings, I make art which is like fine cartoons (cartoons are one of my passions)
