Outside of the Square418 viewsWhile making 'Eye of the Needle' I had a few other ideas pop into my head. This is the second statue in this series exploring shapes and shadow interaction... And yes, I had fun making this one!
Total height 1400 mm
(SOLD)

A Fairy (in Gumboots)255 viewsWhen Abby comes to visit me she loves to put on a fairy dress and wings - (and I'm afraid I couldn't resist putting gumboots on her too)

Bearded Irises from another angle272 views
pillars_in_time_web.JPG
Pillars in Time233 viewsMy work was inspired from a trip to Rome where I saw ancient monuments telling tales of Roman battles and victories.
These two pillars don't speak of such celebrated moments in history, but instead tell some of our own stories. As you walk between them you can travel through the seasons , going to the beach in Summer, playing in leaves in Autumn, having snowball fights in Winter, planting a garden in Spring... etc. They may seem insignificant moments in history , but they make us what we are.

floral_lace.jpg
Floral lace345 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.
deco_birdbath.JPG
Art Deco Birdbath176 viewsI don't often work with angles and lines as I'm not truly comfortable with too much structure or symmetry - but I had this idea, and I played with lines and angles - and I think it would sit beautifully outside an Art Deco house that uses similar ideas. (SOLD)
don_t_know.jpg
Don't Know388 viewsI was doodling when I made this. I began thinking about fish hooks, then dolphins and whales swimming in the ocean, and then vertibrae??? So I came up with something very unusual but soft and flowing with deep contrasting shadows.
1200mm tall on a 200mm tall base
(SOLD)

Taste_of_Elegance.JPG
A Taste of Elegance253 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.

lacy_tui_a.JPG
Tui on Flax (Lacey)246 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)
