Anna Korver is a nationally recognised sculptor. Part of her artist's repertoire is turning large lumps of hard maratoto stone into beautiful sensual eye-catching forms. Originally from Nelson, Anna was taught to carve by her father from the age of four. From this early introduction and what continued to be a consuming artistic interest she went to the University of Canterbury to complete her BFA in sculpture. In this photograph Anna is wearing protective googles and a dust mask whilst working on a piece of maratoto stone.
