Stone Sculpture by Filipe Tohi in the Otaki Forks Artspace grounds. The lower sculpture (left) is carved in Andesite stone (here volcanic hard stone from Taranaki) is based on Lalava (ancient South Pacific forms of lashing). The sculpture above (top right) combines Andesite stone (volcanic hard stone from Taranaki) with stones from Taranki.
Filipe Tohi who now lives in Auckland was one of the founders of the Te Kupenga international stone sculpture symposium which is held every two years in New Plymouth.
Rubbish Blooms – “The Steve” and “The Joy” by Sonja van Kerkhoff. Each ‘flower’ is made from the rubbish donated by the person or family it is named after.
“The Steve” is an arrangement of 9 milk containers while “The Joy” are discarded rubber gloves complemented with bunches of bubble plastic.
