Stairway to heaven491 viewsI see the little grooves in this one as steps... but other people have told me that it reminds them of teeth??? (Can't see it myself)
Anyway, small statue - 360mm tall
(SOLD)

When Lightning Strikes287 viewsHave you ever wondered what would happen if lightning strikes? What shapes would happen? What feelings happen?
I had my mum come over when I was making this one and say "It looks like someone's hair is standing up on end."
Well - maybe it is? Its up to you to interpret.
1.8m tall

Through the looking glass (stage 1)427 viewsWho knows what inspired me here? I usually shy away from geometric shapes, but this time I have straight (well almost straight) lines!
This is only stage 1 of this statue, it has another piece to go on top, but I haven't persuaded my husband to put it there yet. So watch the space next to this picture.
Currently 3 pieces of stone pinned together, total height 1120mm

Every year these irises pop up and do their thing and I love them

Hidden secrets501 viewsMy inspiration for this piece was a piece of broken shell off the beach where the smooth flowing form of the structure of the shell is only exposed after it is broke and worn by the sea... thus exposing the hidden secrets.
Stands about 65cm tall (plus base for stability)

Taste_of_Elegance.JPG
A Taste of Elegance287 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)278 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)
