What's On

41. Michelle Retimana Studio, Gallery & Garden Sculpture

I started playing with clay in the 70s & fell in love with its manipulative tactile nature; mastering various clays,textures & techniques I create large garden sculpture,delicate pinch pots & jewelery also decorative inside pieces,wall art & more.

Much of my work has a Contemporary NZ or Maori influence featuring the nurturing koru, while other inspirations can morph into something quite unique and exciting.

To complement my clay sculptures I enjoy experimenting with glazes & alternative firing techniques including Raku, Pit & Wood Smoked Firing.

I use the lost wax process to create bronze sculptures,while grinding patina & mounting are tedious, the excitement of Sculpting wax, pouring molten bronze &smashing the ceramic shell reward me with 1off sculptures.

I am currently exploring figures influenced by acrobats in Cirque du Solei.

My Dolphin & Whale tails reflect my love & demise of these beautiful mammals

-Individually handformed every piece unique.

Regularly selected for exhibitions.
