Nathan Hull - Sculpture @ Pihama Lavender
3510 South Road, SH3, Pihama
Open: Every day, 10.00am -5.00pm
Nathan Hull is best known for his unique sculptures created from an array of recycled metals, cutlery and other industrial detritus. His works range in size from petite to large scale outdoor structures and while a piece may be seemingly delicate, each work of art tends to evoke a feeling of immense strength and stability while seeming to develop their own individual personalities without effort.
Born in Cambridge, New Zealand in 1979, Nathan Hull begun training as a fitter/welder in his early teens and has worked and furthered his studies in a range of engineering skills over the years since. On ‘just another’ night at home in the workshop over 15 years ago, Nathan found himself with an ideal range of skill sets and experience to tinker with more creative pursuits which have now firmly placed him as an artist.
Surrounded by plenty of wild inspiration to continue the constant theme of nature and her creatures that have been evident from the beginning of his designs, Nathan now resides out in the hills of Uruti, New Plymouth, creating with his wife Destine, and enjoying the comings and goings of his children.
