"Thanksgiving" is an acrylic painting on board. A still, small, everyday sort of moment.
' Food is a gift and should be treated reverentially--romanced and ritualized and seasoned with memory.'
Chris Bohjalian

This is a small ceramic sculpture called "Alleluia". It was in an exhibition that we had in our garden, and it found a new owner.
"This world is full of conflicts and full of things that can't be reconciled. But there are moments when we can...reconcile and embrace the whole mess, and that's what I mean by 'Hallelujah'" Leonard Cohen

‘They went up to the upper room’ Acts 1:13-2:4
For the disciples it was a time of waiting, knowing that they could not go back, but they were frightened and unsure of the future. All they could do was to hold on to the promise, and wait.

'But there is greater comfort in the substance of silence.' Thomas Merton
This small acrylic painting is about that moment, when you have someone in your life who has the courage to hold your grief in their arms, in silence.

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.” Washington Irving

'Freedom' is the moment that the caged bird is set free, to fly high. This wall figure is created in clay, stains, and acrylic paint, which is a long process, but we finally release it.... to a new home! This work is on our website fragmentsofgrace.co.nz

“A feather when viewed separately may seem like only a feather, but when seen through the eyes of truth it is a sacred instrument that lifts a bird in flight.” Molly Friedenfeld

A selection of pieces that make up "Home is where the heart is". All you need is a place to call home, a good book, a quiet place to dream, moments of hospitality, a garden and love. Maybe this is all we need.

Detail of a painting called 'Toward the light'. Light is always so very beautiful, and welcomed, when the darkness has been long and hard. Light causes you to lift your head and to move towards it, to be within it.
The framed painting is on our website fragmentsofgrace.co.nz

Aid through art - an exhibition to raise funds for Ukraine. I am delighted to have two paintings in this group show in Wanaka. Both of the paintings are quite dark, with just a hint of light coming through and are titled 'Resurrection' and 'Easter Sunday'. It is always the darkest before the dawn, and I hope that by raising money and continued awareness for Ukraine, peace will come.

The beautiful Nikau is seldom seen on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand, so if one is ever spotted, it is a 'Alleluia' moment. Frank is also known to burst into song when he lifts a finished vessel from the kiln!

When was the moment you knew that there was 'No turning back'? Maybe that moment is in the future? Those moments can be scary, possibly even deeply terrifying, but also they can define us....as long as we keep breathing!

No turning back is an original painting by Rachel Harre. The original work is available at https://fragmentsofgrace.co.nz/products/no-turning-back

As well as paintings and wall figures we also create sculptures. This particular sculpture is called Faith. Like an armful of lilies, faith is a thing of beauty, that needs to be cherished and passed on to others.

We have several sculptures available on the website at the moment. Check them out.

One of my favourite mediums to work with is clay. The work is carved from the clay, dried, fired in the kiln, stained, fired in the kiln a second time and then painted. This piece, ‘Song of Hope’, follows this process.
