Doug Anderson
Doug Anderson uses natural recycled and salvaged materials in his work, especially old logs and timber. He prefers native timber as it is durable yet it slowly changes over time due to the effects of sun and rain. He also likes to incorporate natural stone and recycled steel into his works. Doug began sculpting after inheriting several chisels around fifteen years ago, which he tested out on an old fencepost. His sculptural ideas have been influenced by his travels, and he is especially drawn to the sculptural forms of Bali and design elements from Japan.

JiL describes her preferred medium as “lime and cement … cast and carve … earth and space.” She has shown her work in over ninety exhibitions, mostly in Hawke’s Bay, during almost thirty years as a practising artist. JiL is known throughout the district for her public work, especially the murals she has been creating for schools and public spaces for the last twenty years. JiL often works collaboratively with her partner Griz Edmonds, and a highlight of their artistic partnership has been their Fire Sculptures – stunning pyrotechnic displays – at the annual Napier Winter Solstice Fire Festival.

Kay Bazzard
Kay Bazzard discovered clay sculpture in 2004 whilst attending the Art and Design Faculty at the EIT, took to it immediately, and has worked in this medium ever since. She has exhibited frequently in Hawke’s Bay over the last two years, and was a finalist in Waiclay 2012 at the Waikato Museum. The change from drawing and painting to 3D expression came easily and naturally for Kay, and she continues to challenge her technique by creating figures in active poses, using different clay, firing in sawdust or raku kilns.

Robbie Graham
As a departure from his usual art-form which is fine art wood turning and demonstrating wood turning nationally and internationally, sculpture has been a big part of Robbie’s work in the last few years. A most enjoyable commission he completed recently was Voyager II, which was for a client in Seattle, Washington State.  Another satisfying major achievement for 2011 was designing and managing the completion of a large-scale interactive public sculpture on the lakefront in Taupo. “The Crossing” represents the awe-inspiring peaks of the Tongariro Crossing and was created from pine poles five metres high, local Tauhara stone, and embellished by pyrography designs depicting cultural aspects of the lake and mountains.

Estelle and Bruce Martin
Kamaka Pottery was started in 1965 when Estelle and Bruce Martin started potting full time. Until 1982 they made glazed domestic wares fired in an oil-burning kiln. Following an extended visit to Japan in 1978 they built a large wood fired anagama type kiln which they first fired in 1982. In 1983 a Japanese Master Potter, Mr Sanyo Fujii, came and lived with Estelle and Bruce for seven months and together they made pots and had a firing of the Kamaka anagama. The pots he made and a selection of Estelle’s and Bruce’s work were sent to Japan and shown in a joint exhibition at the Mitsukoshi Gallery of Fine Art in Osaka in 1984. When Estelle died in 2001 there were many pots in the workshop and Bruce retired from potting. The pots on show here at the Wildflower Sculpture Exhibition are some from their collection. Other work may be seen at the Kamaka Gallery, 64 Valentine Road, R.D.5. Hastings.

Coral Pearson-Revel
Coral began working in clay in 2006, upon her return to New Zealand. Prior to this her profession was psychology and, in the distant past, fashion design. Many of Coral’s sculptural pieces are figurative, drawing upon body language, gestures and stance to create an attitude or emotional expression. This develops during the creative process rather than being purposely sought. The “Dora” series is the result of experimenting with the juxtaposition of facial features. They too evolve with their own whimsical characteristics.

Nigel Roberts

This aspect of Nigel’s current practice explores ways to represent flux in dynamic sculptural form. Nigel’s material research involves forming steel into a helix configuration (the basis of DNA stranding), then sectioning pieces that re-interpret the flow pattern links between negative and positive states. The concept of a symbiotic universe underlies his practice, exploring metaphors of organic life and re-evaluating scientific thought models. Nigel is the programme co-ordinator for Visual Arts and Design at EIT.

Their studio is at a very special (ukaipo) enclave of family land in Haumoana, Hawke’s Bay. It sits close to the Tuki Tuki River and Haumoana Beach on the Pacific Ocean. They produce honed down elegant stone forms sensitive to balance and flow-inviting to touch. Ema and Stephen describe sculpting stone as “physically demanding, intellectually challenging, spiritually connecting, bringing much peace.” They call this work Kohatu humarie (Stonepeace)

Martin Selman
The work of Martin Selman engages the language of stone carving with specific focus to Carrara marble. His commitment to the medium has involved extensive work, research and travel in New Zealand, Italy, England and Switzerland. Selman works with notions of shaping a dynamic fluidity, transforming a hard and unresponsive material into an object of softness, seduction and lightness. His choice of material and imagery are bound by their relations to the classical lexicon.

Linda Trubridge
Linda Trubridge maintains a creative art practice as well as teaching Art and Yoga. She has completed two public sculpture commissions which evoke the spiritual significance of bird and wing forms as relevant symbols for our communities. The stainless and corten steel sculpture “The Eye of the Hawk” stands in the centre of Waipukurau and a pierced concrete form “Wall of Wings” was constructed for the Havelock North Village square. Works constructed in Linda’s studio are sculpted using stoneware clay which allows for some spontaneity in the application of ideas. ‘Moon Shrine’ is influenced by Maori, Africa and Indian Mythologies.

Steuart Welch is a dairy farmer turned artist, using welder, angle grinder and steel. His early work was often two dimensional pictorial using weathered or second hand material. Moving to a more three dimensional style “from the head” has resulted in a shift to new steel (and an improvement in welding technique.) The recent sculptures which may be loops, cubes, jigsaws or machinery parts are designed for the great outdoors. Steuart claims no social comment in his work, just a desire to create.
