Sweet Dreams are made of this178 viewsMy littlest granddaughter Jody was only 2 when I carved this. And much to her parents horror she sucks her thumb. But I think she's really sweet
'Circles in the sand'383 viewsI was trying to think of an idea for a sculpture for an exhibition which was called "Point to point" for some reason the old join the dots (or dot to dot) came to mind. I did a row of dots and then thought it resembled Neptune's necklace - a seaweed I see on the beach sometimes... Then the patterns of wind and water came to mind - so this piece just evolved.
Stairway to heaven435 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
River song 1159 viewsOne piece out of series of three
The source413 viewsSoft flowing form, reminiscent of water flowing/
Statue 1.2 metres tall (plus base)

A Taste of Elegance229 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)221 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)
