Queen to Pawn 7259 viewsWe treat the global warming issue like a game - thinking that we can play around with the environment in the hope of better economic outcomes - and then when this game is over and we've lost the game (our environment) we can put the pieces back on the board and start again.
The Queen piece (on left) shows the sun, its power distorted by growing industrial activity. The Pawn(on right)the flooding, slipping, melting of glaciers.

Flora401 views1220 mm tall in total. four pieces pinned together. Study of petals and stamens reminiscent of the campula flowers growing in my garden
River Song164 viewsI was sitting on the banks of the Waipawa River one day, throwing stones in and watching the ripples made when I found myself transfixed by the movement of water over and around stones. I watched the way the water swirled and flowed making patterns in light and form.
It always intrigues me trying to replicate movement in something really static like stone – it is so rigid and fixed - so I saw it as a challenge.
Nikau Palm673 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

A Taste of Elegance225 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)217 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)
