I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons, its great to feel Spring finally kicking in!
We have been busy in the workshop preparing for Spring Sculpture Shows which started with...
This much awaited show opened on 9 September at Tin Palace in Lyttelton and runs until the 27th.
Participants were asked to create a piece inspired by a Harbour Basin. The Award was won by Rob Upritchard for his Balsalt pieces and Graham Bennett received the 'Most Innovative' Award for his piece 'Hand-Wash Basin'.

My piece 'Star Basin' was made from glass and steel using pressure and heat as were the minerals that form a volcanic harbour basin.
I used forms found throughout nature to show the contrast between fragility and strength, permanence and the emphemeral.

This piece has sold.
