‘Kupenga Sisters’ by Jasmine Clark (Arrowtown). Made from woven copper wire, supplejack* and ratan. Viewed during my birthday visit to the 2019 Arts Gold Finalists Exhibition at Central Stories Museum and Art Gallery, Alexandra, Central Otago, New Zealand. Very graceful I thought, and I love the shadow effects!
First two photos are mine, the third was taken by Nigel. Click on photo to enlarge.
* Supplejack is a NZ native vine that’s very tough and common in lowland forests. It climbs up any handy support and in the absence of a support just grows itself into a huge tangle on the ground. It can make walking through the bush really difficult, even impossible!
Here’s a photo taken by Nigel. Supplejack or Ripogonum scandens (with red fruits).
