Denise Newland, Patterns 400 x 150 x 300h mm andesite stone
These sculptural pieces are all made from hard Taranaki Andesite stone from our very own Taranaki Maunga.
I enjoy the process of allowing myself to go with my instincts of finding something within the stone that I can bring out from within the piece. This is what I most like.
The stone offers me it’s natural ancient skin, then the invitation to cut within; to form, then smooth, texture, polish and finish as I desire, to create these finished pieces.
Besides these smaller pieces I make larger sculptures from the Andesite boulders (see Bio).
