Margi Nuttall. Ceramicist
Waikato based object maker Margi Nuttall has been working with clay for over 20 years, perfecting a range of objects including utilitarian vases forms, jugs and bowls. Vase forms are bold and simple emphasising weight and stillness allowing material to speak, with clays and glazes reflecting this.
The recent collection of objects created by Belgian designer, maker and art dealer, Arno Declercq pays homage to history and craft by focusing on ancient architecture, tribal arts and design. Each piece of wood is hand-crafted by Arno and his father from one of two types of wood: decades-long dried oak and the tropical hardwood Iroko. The beauty of the veins and the texture of the black solid wood reveals itself in each object in its own, unique way.
