A Note from me.....Tui Platter

Hi everyone.....

Hasn’t it been a fabulous summer and the great weather is still continuing! I’ve made the most of the sunny days going around and about Wellington admiring the architecture. This inspiration has led to many hours drawing Wellington scenes which will culminate in new designs for tiles. This will be the focus of my work for the next couple of years and I can’t wait to start bringing the designs to life on clay.


The Tuatara sculptures are still very popular but I’ve taken some time out to develop a new series of Tuatara sculptures that hang on the wall. I’ll get these photographed soon so that you can have a look.

A new opportunity for me is the Kohia Terrace School Art Exhibition in Auckland. This runs over the weekend of 11-12 June and is well worth a look if you’re in the City of Sails.

Vibrant New Zealand themed artwork

From her studio on the Kapiti Coast, Vinny Thompson designs and makes a range of pottery tiles, platters and bowls. Her work illustrates a number of contemporary New Zealand themes including Tuataracharacter villas and cottages, landmark buildings, and native New Zealand birds. The surface of each piece has been carved giving it a texture that is interesting to touch. Each piece is hand-glazed in vibrant colours.

Vinny also sculpts Tuatara from earthenware or stoneware clays, and these are suitable as outdoor artworks for display on the deck or in the garden.

Each individual piece is hand-crafted making each work a memorable and unique piece of New Zealand artwork.
