Table Setting

It is a rare opportunity for visual artists to be assisted to turn their creative skills to a different media. But with the generous support of leading tableware manufacturer Studio Ceramics, six contemporary artists have had the opportunity to do just that. Chis Harvey, Director of Studio Ceramics, has kindly offered to open his factory to them and provided the technical support required to explore this medium.

Marie Shannon: Ordinary Things

"My love of ordinary things is the basis of my art" Marie Shannon, 1997

Lapa

Lapa

Lapa (flashes of phosphorescent light) is a phenomenon recognisable to only the most experienced of Polynesian navigators. In conjunction with the bounce back wave, Lapa signalled to early navigators a change in the motion of the waka and indicated the presence and direction of land. Thus the journey of Polynesian art - having left the homeland - recognises the search for new directions and innovations.

Envoys

Envoys: Association of Women Artists International Postcard Project

Initiated by the Association of Women Artists in 1993 to mark the centenary of New Zealand's Womens Suffrage, Envoys takes a wilfully resistant position against the instant, impersonal and mass-audience modes of newest contemporary communication systems. While the internet can send messages to millions, the contributors to Envoys rejoice instead in the gentle intimacy of the personal, individually handmade postcard.
