sculpt sunday

What better way to begin a glorious NZ Sunday than with breakfast out with Mr TS followed by a saunter around the grounds of Gladstone Vineyard to view the breath-taking Sculpture in the Country bi-annual event. Being one of first to arrive meant that we were able to view and photograph at our leisure. Here are just a few of the artworks that caught my eye.

Kiwi Riders was my all time favourite. Ethereal, illustrative and joyful.

Lunch on the deck followed. Earlier on in the week a friend made me lunch and it was so delicious that I decided to make it for us today. tomatoes and basil from the garden – they’re coming out of our ears at the moment!

Until next time…

  1. Wow! Fantastic sculptures, my favourite is “Pollem”.

  2. Yes, ‘Pollem’ is pretty special isn’t it? Nico is a local artists and sells his work in Red Moa, the new gallery we have in Carterton. Stop and look perhaps next time you’re heading to Wellington.
