The Answer579 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)
Lizard Sun Dial489 viewsI usually make individual lizards basking on a rock but in this piece I decided that it would be fun having lizards scampering up a column.
Floral lace516 viewsI was really enjoying this piece in my garden, but in November 2011 some scumbag stole this piece and I now have no idea where it could be. If you see it anywhere could you contact me. I would really appreciate getting it back.
Future Dreams663 viewsFour fern fronds unfurling. 1.5 m tall (approx)
Winds of change826 viewsFern fronds unfurling, changing, evolving.

Water Guardian318 viewsThe Water Guardian cares for the creatures of the lakes and rivers, and the ocean. He watches in despair as we pour pollution into our waterways and ignore the health of those that rely on the water to live.

Little sister480 viewsOnly a small statue (only 44cm tall)
It is difficult to see in this photo but there is a nice flowing streak of iron oxide running through the stone which adds to the form and uniqueness of this piece

A Taste of Elegance484 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)450 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)

Fern Lace483 viewsI keep returning again and again to ferns - perhaps because I love them. This is a smaller version of a fern (65cm) done in a lacey style.Apr 03, 2016
Dale's new beginnings.481 viewsAfter retirement beginnings a new life with new starts and challenges. The fern speaks of the life that has been - and the unfurling frond speaks of the new changes. Happy retirement Dale (SOLD)Apr 03, 2016
