diane connal

Diane lives in Waikanae Beach, New Zealand, where she finds her work reflecting her love of the coastline and Kapiti Island. “I have a strong organic feel that runs through my designs and it’s linked to where I live.”

Diane works with silver, enamel and found objects, both natural and urban. She works on designs and themes until they feel complete - sometimes this can take years. She has worked with bone and china over most of her career and has taken these materials to a new level.

Inspiration comes from interesting textures, colours, forms and themes like politics, the environment and whims of the heart.
