Robyn Stewart

Post  fredoliphant on Thu 3 Jul - 11:33

I am a relation (fairly distant) of Robyn's and have managed to recently buy two small pieces of her work while in Wellington in March this year.

I know she is no longer working and suffers from dementia but we spent a wonderful afternoon last month with her and her son David at the Brick Bay sculpture trail in Mahurangi.

I am very interested in anyone who has any of her work that they would like to sell. I am in New Zealand on an extended holiday and would dearly love to take some more of Robyn's work back home to Scotland with me.

I hope some one may be able to help me find some of her pieces.

Hi there, good luck with your quest as you don't see Robyn Stewart's gorgeous work in the public domain very often.  The occasional piece at top rate Auction Houses and very rarely on TradeMe a NZ auction site.
Here is a listing that was on that site recently and didn't sell, probably because there is no mark to confirm that Robyn made it ... and the colour is so different.

I'm sorry to hear about Robyn's issues.

Hi Thanks for they reply. I did see the piece on trademe and sent a question regarding whether the piece was in fact Robyns but never received a reply. I am not sure that it was hers really.

If there is anyone who does have any of her work for sale or knows of anyone who might be willing to sell please let me know. I know that Robyn's immediate family would love to have some more of her work also.
I cannot post my email address in this reply but will visit the site again for any news.

Thank you

It is sad to hear Robyn is no longer potting, for a few years Robyn was a Quarry Craft Co-op member in Whangarei, she sold Koru in hessian bags, that one on Trade Me does look like her work to me too.  cat
