Giant Daisy205 viewsI was looking at lawn daisies on the lawn one day (after my husband had been cursing them for coming up so quickly since he had only mown the lawn the day before) and I marvelled at the beauty and simplicity of the humble daisy. So I felt moved to make this. I love this giant daist floating in a sea of little daisies. Its magical.

Pillars in Time233 viewsMy work was inspired from a trip to Rome where I saw ancient monuments telling tales of Roman battles and victories.
These two pillars don't speak of such celebrated moments in history, but instead tell some of our own stories. As you walk between them you can travel through the seasons , going to the beach in Summer, playing in leaves in Autumn, having snowball fights in Winter, planting a garden in Spring... etc. They may seem insignificant moments in history , but they make us what we are.

exposed to the elements - side view469 viewsShe turns her face up to the sun, wind and rain... trully exposed to the elements.
Statue sits about 1 metre tall (plus base). Another statue people love to touch (very smooth)

In the Groove408 viewsA neighbour of mine saw one of my other wacky pieces and said 'I bet you can't carve balls suspended within the stone.' I took that as a challenge and here it is! - balls caught in the groove... A really fun, funky piece which always makes me smile.
Stands 1400mm tall

Tui birdbath351 viewsWhen a friend saw my tui sundial she wanted a birdbath in a similar design... so I made her one. Initially it had a flax leaf design on the base like it has photographed here, but after further consideration I decided it looked better without a base, but with just the column and bowl. Now Tuis, along with other birds, drink and bathe in it daily in Vicky's garden.

Nikau Palm702 viewsStatue made in two pieces pinned together. Statue stands just over 2 metres tall and is VERY heavy!
I really like how light and shadows play on this piece. Sorry... Not for Sale

Toitoi458 viewsInspired by a trip to Hastings when I saw toitoi blowing in the wind.
More dramatic shadows when in full sun - but it doesn't photograph well with extremes in light and shadows
90cm tall including base. Two pieces pinned.

A Taste of Elegance253 viewsThis is one of the most time consuming pieces I have ever carved! It took months - to carve out the bowl of the glass, drill thousands of holes to make the laceyness, shape the leaves, and the sanding was a nightmare.
But this piece while formal, is super elegant. I uplight it at night to show the shadows and form. Its one of my current favourites.

Tui on Flax (Lacey)246 viewsIn Spring there are hundreds of tuis at my place, fighting over kowhais and flax flowers while I work. They are such beautiful birds.
I have been thinking about making a lacey sculpture with birds for a while and a tui on a flax is my first attempt.
This was made a a birthday present for an environmentalist. I hope it sits well amongst your bush/garden and that the tuis fly around it there too. (SOLD)
