Tony Schraufnagel Sculpture

Recent work from Aotearoa

Over the past six months while living in New Zealand I have embarked on a completely new body of work reflecting my time here in this beautiful country.

The  Boulder Bank series

The  Boulder Bank series derives its name from the unique geographical feature found in Nelson  New Zealand and consists of a long strip of smoothed stones which form a strip of land dividing Nelson Haven from Tasman Bay.  Using the slip casting process, a number of molds were pulled form actual stones fond in the Nelson area and the resulting castings were assembled into “ceramic collages” of stone forms.

The stones used were found along the banks of the Wiamea River (removing stones from the actual Boulder Bank is prohibited) Each piece is midfire white slip cast clay decorated with a variety of stains and a transparent gloss over glaze.

Images below represent selected works spanning the last 17 years.
