THIS NZ LIFE PROFILE INTERVIEW ON CHERISE

"From a distance her creations appear to float mid-air like great metallic sea creatures. Rows upon rows of spiralling links can withstand wind, rain and curious prods. It’s sculpted magic she’s created with galvanised and No. 8 fencing wire.

  Cherise with her sculpture ‘Kai Nui’, meaning ‘high tide’ or big sea’ in Hawaiian. It took 1177m of wire to weave.

Months of work, and 100s of kilometres of wire, go into her sculptures – each of which can cost anywhere from $3000 to over $10,000."

 Second place winner Cherise Thomson with 'Korowai'

Second place winner Cherise Thomson with 'Korowai'

'Korowai' is a tribute to my memories of my mother, to the grace and beauty of this traditional Māori art form – and to early settlers like my great grandparents and grandparents who tirelessly attempted to bend and shape the land (and endless spools of No.8 wire) to their will.
