#2002 ... Once was clay

Simple. Crafted. Contemporary... Sue Dasler creates fine contemporary ceramics. Go along to her studio and check out the simple tapa designs ... we purchased a set of cups and saucers. Sue's work is shown throughout New Zealand in numerous galleries. All work is wheel thrown with form and function as the primary focus. Sue's inspirations come from the functionality of simple forms, patterns from our environment and culture, the immediacy of making from throwing on the wheel and the intimate relationships we developed with the domestic ware in our homes.

#1994 ... Giant Kina

Nine massive kina, each weighting up to 7.5 tonnes, have been lowered in to Wellington Harbour at Kumutoto Wharf which is north of Queens Wharf. The new sculpture by Michel Tuffery, Nga Kina, was constructed in Auckland and trucked to Wellington late last week. Each concrete kina was two to three metres in diameter, with the heaviest weighing 7.5 tonnes. They would be lit underwater with a ''complex lighting system''. This photo shows the kina halfway through the installation process ... and note the seagull, mid frame swoopong in to investigate.
