Eighteen talented sculptors will be taking part in the 2018 Rotorua Sculpture Symposium.

Each of the sculptors will spend ten days carving and sculpting pieces relating to this year’s symposium theme Ngā Wai o Rotorua – The Waters of Rotorua.

The sculptors, from New Zealand and around the world, choose the material they carve with from Oamaru stone, Taranaki andesite or macrocarpa, with some combining several of the materials into their final design.

The Symposium opens on Friday 16 November and carvers work through the weekend and following week to complete their sculptures. On Sunday 25 November tools are laid down and judging begins for the Supreme Award winner who receives $10,000. The winning piece becomes a permanent part of Rotorua’s public art collection.

The remaining artworks will be placed in the Sulphur Lake Sculpture Trail for people to enjoy for years to come.
