Copper Wall Sculpture by Rudi Buchanan Strewe

Working from his studio in Karekare, Auckland, Rudi Buchanan-Strewe produces work in cast bronze, oxidized hand beaten copper, and recycled steel. He is skilled in black smithing, metal forging, and bronze casting using the lost wax technique. He values the traditional artisan nature of these techniques and the fact that they have been practiced for thousands of years. His work is strongly influenced by the natural world around him with a particular emphasis on New Zealand’s unique and distinctive native flora.​Through beating, cutting, and shaping, Buchanan-Strewe transforms his metal materials into organic and rambling wall relief sculptures. 

He is interested in the contrast between industrial material and natural subject matter. When mounted on the wall his plants cast appealing shadows that further enhance the piece. Buchanan-Strewe's works make for an impressive statement either indoors or outdoors.
