RUDI BUCHANAN STREWE

 

Rudi trained as a motorcycle mechanic and mostly worked on restoring classic motorbikes. Often this entailed fabricating or sometimes casting parts. His affinity for working with metal, lead him to building a forge for blacksmithing when he was 16 yrs old. He has learnt the technique of the lost wax casting process and now casts jewellery in bronze and silver and sculptures in bronze and aluminium. He also likes working with copper, as it’s a good material to fabricate and forge into sculptures. Rudi has exhibited in several shows in Auckland.
