Jim Wheeler was one of the sculptors whose work was on display at the Botanic Garden.
Object of devotion
We invited him to come to Kindy to talk to us about his work and Olivia welcomed him wearing our Korowai
He brought lots of his work to show us and we had LOTS of questions for him.
All his works reflect his love for the
flora and fauna New
We learnt so much about the process of making his sculptures. It was much different than we expected. He starts by making a small model then progresses to a bigger one then a bigger one – we thought he would just make the one big one!
He showed us on his computer how he had made his work in the Botanic Garden
We loved the wooden bird that he made
