Chips fly as sculp­tors be­gin magic cre­ations

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Thir­teen sculp­tors from around the Waikato/Bay of Plenty are tak­ing part in the Mata­mata Sculp­ture Sym­po­sium which got un­der way on Mon­day. Pieces will be worked on be­tween 8am and 8pm each day and most will be avail­able for sale at the auc­tion on Fe­bru­ary 12. A new ini­tia­tive this year is the peo­ple’s choice award. From day three peo­ple can vote for their favourite sculp­tor or sculp­ture.

Or­gan­is­ers said that for safety vis­i­tors to the sym­po­sium should stay away from the power tools, be aware of cords and fly­ing stone chips and never tap a sculp­tor on the shoul­der.
