One of my favourite sculptures from this year’s NZ Sculpture OnShore exhibition, John Ferguson’s wonderful ‘Blooming Buckets.’ Literally made of large plastic buckets mounted on a steel “stem”, this piece is just so colourful and full of joy. Set against the backdrop of Rangitoto Island, it proved to be one of the most memorable and photographed works in the exhibition.
