Shapeshifter 2014

Shapeshifter ends 16 March. If you haven’t been yet it is open every day from 11am to 7pm.
I have been fortunate as my sculptures will be wrapped up to go to their new homes.

On site at Shapeshifter 2014 sculpture exhibition

It was a nerve racking day for me watching my sculpture being loaded up.
When we got there I nervously approached an official looking person to ask where I should go. He instantly put my fears at rest with his warmth and friendliness. As the day progressed I found that this was standard behaviour from all the staff who are the Lower Hutt Rotary people. Everything was well organised, delicious food and caring people. I was taken to my spot which was perfect and exactly what I had asked for. The wonderful forklift came and the cat was put in place and looks very happy there.

Shapeshifter 2014

I am working on my sculpture for the Shapeshifter exhibition in 22 Feb – 17 Mar.
My biggest fear at the moment is how to get my sculpture to the show safely.
