This beautiful wall sculpture is a collaboration between Jenny McLeod and Justine Hawksworth. Justine has hand drawn the copper feathers that sit perfectly between Jenny's glass and copper spikes. These wall necklaces are an ongoing series for Jenny and reference the necklaces created and worn by many Pacific Islanders.

This new series titled "Handle with care" draws attention to our native New Zealand bird species. Delicate layers and detailing within each painting serve to enhance their precious nature and each is encircled with recycled barbed wire, requiring that the artworks themselves are handled with care.
This series has sold with just the "Karearea" (New Zealand falcon) remaining and its national status is 'In recovery'.

This contemporary work is fresh from Bec's studio. She has drawn it directly onto the wood so the grain becomes part of the bird with a luscious resin finish. This Magpie stands guard on a background of grey that matches its feathers perfectly.
