A Note from me.....Tui Platter

Hi everyone.....

2018 sees the end of all my other work commitments and my return to fulltime art.

How I’ve missed my studio - once we cleared out all the cobwebs and the DaddyLongLegs spiders, of course. The cat is back in residence and sleeping in her spot on the drying-shelves. We’re both enjoying this workshop cool haven in this summer heat.


I will be back at the NZ Art Show with a display wall this time, so come along and say ‘Hi’. I’m also aiming to be on the Kapiti Arts Trail too, which runs through the last weekend of October and first weekend of November. Hopefully, I will be able to open my home studio to the public, and you can check out my workshop and my stunning kiln shed.

My new work includes inspiration from Mt Victoria and Oriental Parade, as well as a new range of Tuatara on cubes or old bricks. I’ll post photos on the website once it has been through the kiln.

I've added a new 'Archives' section to the website. I'm hoping to use this to show a bit of a more complete record of my work. I've started with the Orbs Archive. Please check it out and we'll add more achive pages as we have time.

See you soon ....

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.
