I am Claire and I am the woman behind Vivid Wire.
Vivid Wire brings magic, bold and colourful wire and wall art to your home and work-spaces!💛
It is also home to the Original Wire Rainbow 🌈.
Why do I create wire art?
💛I make wire art because it gives my customers the perfect finishing touch to their dream kitchen or the bedroom that they have put off decorating for years because other rooms were more important.
💛I make wire art to add the final, perfect touch to the nursery for the parents who have been longing for their baby who will finally be arriving soon; a piece of art to mark the fact that it was worth the wait.
💛I make wire art to recreate the handwriting of a loved one who has passed away, so that a little bit of them comes back to life.
💛I make wire art so my customers can have swear words up in their house to shock their mother-in-laws.
💛I make wire art to bring magic to a child’s bedroom.
💛I make wire art to make a home feel complete.
I also make wire art because it MAKES MY CHUFFING HEART SING!!!!!
From the designing, to the drawing, to the making, to the packaging of the pieces, I love almost every second. When I was on maternity leave after having my son Jackson, the need to make after years of working with homeless families and as an Assistant Headteacher came back with a vengeance. I had used wire while creating my wedding flowers and had loved how I could create form and structure with ease. I had visions in my mind of something I wanted to create and my hands made it! Every time Jackson slept, I made and after a couple of months, my best friend said, “you should sell these…”
The name ‘Vivid’ for the business had come to me one day when I was daydreaming at some traffic lights. The word ‘Vivid’ created a powerful and vibrant image in my mind, coupled with the fact that my nickname is Vid, a shortening of my maiden name, it was a perfect fit. ‘Vivid Wire’ was born.
