Hello, I am
Handcrafter based in Auckland
My work is inspired by the shapes of nature and creatures found on our beaches and seashores. I create original air dry clay decor with shells I collect from around New Zealand.
WHAT I DO
Original air dry clay wall hangings and decor items
I decide on a design and work with the air dry clay like you would with kiln dried clay but it is left to dry out over a period of days. I use clay made by Jovi in Spain who have been manufacturing art supplies for over 75 years. The clay comes in three colours – natural white, terracotta and stone grey.
Clay is rolled, cut and smoothed into a design.
Shells are then pressed into the clay.
The clay work is left to dry slowly for several days.
Once the work is dried and sanded, paint and a water based varnish give a splash proof seal.
I would love to hear from you so why not drop an email.
