Henry on path708 viewsWelcome to my place. I have heaps of my sculpture to show you - so sit back and enjoy.
The Answer422 viewsI was thinking about grass blowing around in the wind when I was carving this one and then half way through I under went a slight change of mind... deciding that it would be too busy with lots of swaying lines all over it. So I went for a smooth contrast. So this one I feel is very tactile. You can run you fingers along the wavy lines and then enjoy the cool smoothness of the central core.
Stand 600mm high plus 100mm base (SOLD)
Guardian of the Land193 viewsThe Land Guardian cares for what grows and lives upon the land. the trees, plants and animals.
Fern frond194 viewsA small piece - depicting the fern frond and leaf (sold)
Wavy fern leaf453 viewsAs a teenager I used to be taken on bush walks by my parents – both of whom were very knowledgeable about plants and trees. They used to argue amongst themselves about specific botanic names and tell me the most amazing things about the plants we passed by. “Wavy fern” (not its biological name – sorry Mum and Dad) is not a small fern but a large glossy one – which I love the undulating shapes.
Entwined (view1)197 viewsMe just doodling with stone again and trying to get a shape which makes the stone look fluid. Had fun with this one and different people see different things in it.
Memorial for Dad.488 viewsOne of the statues carved soon after my father's death in memory of him. This little tiki was made from one of the first pieces of stone I bought on the day Dad died. Dad taught me to carve in wood (in a Maori style) so this tiki is carved just for him.
Pawn 7195 viewsThe “Pawn 7” piece uses symbols representing land, water, erosion, and the melting glaciers caused by global warming

A Taste of Elegance276 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)267 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)
