Volker Hawighorst

New Plymouth

Double finalist at the 2020 Molly Morpeth Canaday Award 3D
Finalist at Waiheke Community Gallery Small Sculpture Prize 2020

Throughout his professional career, design has been the main focus of Volker's work. As a trained cabinet maker, he has a strong foundation of solid craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail. Art was always a presence in his daily life. He created his first big sculpture in the early ‘90s for Lufthansa German Airlines at the new Munich airport. For several decades he worked as an architect in international environments, responsible for design and delivery of large corporate projects as well as tailored solutions for smaller ventures.
After moving from Germany to New Zealand, Volker started exploring new media to express his creativity. The aesthetics of recycled materials became more and more significant and he is intrigued by being able to give something that is considered useless a new sense of usefulness.
