NZ Art Show Online

This year’s exhibition revisits my previous series of Bronze Sculptures, ‘similar but different’, my focus continues with ‘my girls’ inspired by Cirque du solei; acrobats, dancers and contortionists playing with movement.

Also simple forms of Whale and Dolphin tails, leaves, flowers, feathers and shells ‘Natures Treasures’
…though not always easy to cast in bronze.

- I feel that 3d wall art alongside paintings add interest to that space, so have included wall hung pieces in all my series.

I have been interested in casting bronze since my teenage years and I started working in wax in 2009, after my first bronze casting experience in 2010 I was ‘hooked’. I use the lost wax process to create bronze sculptures, while grinding patina and mounting are often tedious, the excitement of sculpting wax, pouring molten bronze and smashing the ceramic shell reward me with ‘one off’ sculptures.

Because my pieces are all individually created ‘one off’, there can be no redo … if it doesn’t pour successfully, its gone!
I have pride in creating individually hand formed work …every piece unique.

NOTE; I will be updating with new works as pieces are sold, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
