Michelle Retimana

Michelle uses the lost wax process to create bronze sculptures “While grinding, patina and mounting are often tedious, the excitement of sculpting wax, pouring molten bronze and smashing the ceramic shell reward me with ‘one off’ sculptures …every piece unique.”

This series of ‘natures treasures’; Koru, flora and fauna draws on an emotional and spiritual connection with her Maori Whanau.

Michelle has exhibited through various galleries in New Zealand and the UK, her work is regularly selected for National and Regional Exhibitions and she is proud to be a New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts Elected Artist.
