Pumice heads: Some of the sculpture on display. Telegraph towers: Waikanae's Wendy Cone among the art works. By TALIA CARLISLE 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 dis- play of carvings, pottery, paint- ings, 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 installa- tions made from recycled materi- als. It's a nice family day out [for] grandchildren up to grand- parents... and they find it really interesting.'' The pots and artwork will remain on display until the festi- val ends on Sunday, with more demonstrations taking place this weekend, Mrs Piercy said.
