About Whirlwind Designs

Back in 1995 Nick began to create wind sculptures and whirligigs, selling them in Martinborough New Zealand. At around the same time Michelle began a business specialising in the use of paint techniques on a surfaces both large and small.

When we got together we combined our years of experience with enthusiasm for making original objects and Whirlwind Designs came into being. We recreated some of the favourite wind sculptures, developed new ideas and began the BEING There range of Magnetic Scenes.

Our travels in the world, along with our love of the natural environment here in New Zealand stir us to make objects that fit in the contemporary home while giving a nod to the past.

We hope you enjoy owning our designs as much as we enjoy making them. Our business is a family affair with all the crew pitching in to make it a success.

Along with the designs on show here, we welcome commissions and special projects.
