Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Christine Whiteley – Petal Pottery the Ceramic Florist

Having left a career at Waikato Hospital and a lifestyle block in Eureka, Christine Whiteley is now living ‘the dream’ in Omokoroa. Her time is devoted to handcrafting a variety of colourful ceramics for people to enjoy in their homes and gardens. Making use of totara posts and her welding skills, Christine finds inspiration from her past as a landscape designer, infusing her creations with uniqueness and vibrancy.
