Last weekend over 200 artists in the West opened their doors to connect with the public during the West Artists’ Open Studio Weekend. I grabbed the opportunity to visit Steve Woodward whose work featured on this blog on a number of occasions (Stand Turn Spin, Waituarangi Bridge, Step Touch Stone, Whau Pod). Once I had found his studio (in amongst a cluster of warehouses), it was interesting to hear about his work and how he developed his craft working for Italian and French sculptors.
Steve is an internationally recognized artist, with work in public and private collections here and in Australia, Canada, China, France, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand.
