It took a while, the Last Waltz series finally got big enough to go outside at averaging 1600mm high, two selling on opening night with a third finished overnight fill an exhibition invitation! Developed to be dismantled in three pieces enabling shipping to become alot more viable. The base cone can also be constructed hollow so it can be filled with a weighted material like sand of pebbles or pinned to the ground depending on the location.
Intimate Encounters Be enchanted by sparkling sculptures, dance with viruses and enjoy intimate conversation surrounded by expansive paintings. This White Night, at least 5 Auckland artists invite you to their sleepless night including Ronald Andreassend, Karen Chan, Isla Osborne, Anita Glucina, Kathy Ready, Raynor Dunn, Peter Viesnik and several more to come.
You know its the summer holidays when Ponsonby is hot and empty- its a good time to play around.
Digging out the half finished pieces, rummaging through boxes and flicking through old sketchbooks. Music at full volume drowning out the phone, its self indulgent bliss and a good way to start the year
Just booked a space at the first The Big Design Market in Melbourne, 7,8,9 December. It is a retail event with both established and emerging designers located in The Royal Exhibition Hall.
The format has huge potential to becoming the premium design show in Australia , especially considering the changes in retail and wholesale as well as the location.
NZ designers could easily use this to test the Australian market. At this stage I`ll be taking art, waltz sculptures, lights and jewellery plus my son, its time he learnt what I have to do for a living.
Finally finished and delivered around 20 pieces including ceramic lights, resin icons, waltz & tool sculptures.

An idea developed around resin wings that were made 10 years ago and gathering dust.
Painted and reassembled with other elements revealed several directions to follow from the romantic & angelic to the origins of the phrase `on a wing and a prayer` as well as the darker side of things.
