Karin is originally from Germany, who on her OE fell in love with a Kiwi farmer, married, raised a family and discovered a passion for stone carving. She also came across glass casting and now mainly works with glass, but with the addition of wood or stone in her pieces. Karin likes creating simple forms, mixing and matching with playful concepts and most of the works feature clear, strong lines.
Her playful yet subtle works and installations have been shown in exhibitions including Waitakaruru Sculpture Park, NZ Sculpture On Shore, Harbourview Sculpture Trail Te Atatu Peninsula, Artspost Hamilton and at Wallace Gallery Morrinsville. Karin has work in private collections nationally and internationally.
“The unique qualities of glass as a sculptural medium allow me to bring contrast with colour and the use of light in my mixed media pieces.”
