Mia Hamilton

Wellington based artist Mia Hamilton doesn't just stick to her knitting, she's a sculptor and ceramic artist too. Mia has worked as a full time artist since graduating from The Learning Connexion in 2008. Mia’s current work is explored through pottery, knitting and crochet – mainly large industrial sized outdoor sculptures. Mia’s large knitted installation art is based on childhood recollections and childhood art.

Earthenware Ceramic Art Bowls are a representation of absolute simplicity with a reflective Turquoise glaze on the interior contrasted with the rough black exterior. Dramatic ceramic bowls are accompanied by larger ceramic ‘jewellery for walls’. Her wall-hangings are modelled on contemporary New Zealand Jewellery. Mia exhibits annually at the NZ Art Show and her work is seen widely through contemporary art galleries throughout New Zealand and on occasion, even Australia.
