Lake House Members Merit Awards

I have two entries, my 'Crocus' mosaic and 'Spring Trio', which is my first major sculptural piece - in fact it is is three pieces (spheres) representing Spring (the original theme of the exhibition). Each sphere represents a different stage of growth from 1 - dividing cells, 2 - developing buds and 3 - growing shoots.

PRESS RELEASE: Premo sculpture showing at the Lake House

The growing popularity of polymer clay as a fine art medium can be seen at the Members Merit Awards 2012 exhibition, at the Lake House Arts Centre, Takapuna.
‘Spring Trio’ is one of two exhibits from local polymer clay artist, Claire Fairweather. It was created with Premo Sculpey, a brand of artists quality polymer clay, now available from Gordon Harris art stores. On the theme of Spring, the three multi-coloured spheres represent different stages of growth.

Claire says: “I had great fun making these pieces and love the tactile nature of polymer clay as an art medium”.

The exhibition opens on 18 September and runs through to 7 October at the Lake House Arts Centre, 37 Fred Thomas Drive, Takapuna.

If you are tempted to try this oven bake clay for yourself, Claire offers ‘Introduction to Polymer Clay’ workshops, as she is keen to encourage more people to try this incredibly versatile creative medium. For more information about workshops, see her website www.clairefairweather.co.nz

20% off Premo Sculpey polymer clay at Gordon Harris art stores throughout September.

First creation from my new studio

I am really pleased with my first creation from my new little studio. It is a 3 part sculpture called 'Spring Trio', made especially for the Members Merit Awards exhibition at the Lake House Arts Centre, Takapuna. I will not post a photo until the exhibition opens on Tuesday 18 September.
Hopefully I will continue to create great things from my new studio.
