Moving from the city to rural life isn’t easy, and this change has been a slow one for sculptor Sam Duckor-Jones in his transition from Wellington to Wairarapa. Duckor-Jones injects this personal growth and the idea of storytelling into his clay sculpture, which is immediately recognisable to those familiar with his work. Sometimes largescale, sometimes one third of the size, these works often feature figures with long noses, elongated necks and short trunks. They can be painted in many bright colours and offer various poses and stances.
Duckor-Jones is represented by Bowen Galleries.
