Pots of talent at garden art show
Buying new art for the new year seemed a popular motive for Kapiti residents, who flocked to the opening weekend of the fifth Festival of Pots and Garden Art.
Held at Trinity Farm in Otaki, the nine-day festival offers a display of carvings, pottery, paintings, wood and metal work, spread across the three-acre garden.
Trinity Farm owner Karen Piercy said she was pleased with the turnout.
"It's not just pottery.
"One of the new things this year is paintings [and] we've got wood carvings, we don't normally stock wood carvings.
"We've got great big installations made from recycled materials. It's a nice family day out [for] grandchildren up to grandparents . . . and they find it really interesting."
The pots and artwork will remain on display until the festival ends on Sunday, with more demonstrations taking place this weekend, Mrs Piercy said.
