This work is part of ‘Celebration‘ which was made for the 2016/17 Sculpture in the Gardens Exhibition, Auckland Botanic Gardens.

I tried to make the bird whistle. It did for a while in the wax. We all love a whistle blower.

I made these works primarily to foster good relationships between children and public art, to be able to access it in positive healthy ways. The work was set into locally sourced volcanic rock, and set low to the ground at children’s height and to child-friendly scale.
