The Elephant Foot Studio

Nestled in the bush of the Waitakere Ranges on the edge of the Manukau Harbour, Elephant Foot Studio is a collaboration between makers Margaret Chapman and Vicki Bradley. Living out west is an intrinsic part of our lives with work inspired and influenced by the richness of the bush, coast and garden environment. Quilts and stitched works, rats and dolls, wood turned bowls and platters are full of texture and colour reflecting the everchanging visual landscape of these places. 
Margaret lives in Laingholm on the edge of the Manukau Harbour and has a background in landscape design. Home is the coastal marine environment of the Manukau - a maker of things, stitcher, dyer and walker of dogs.

Vicki is a textile artist with experience in teaching and a life long interest in textiles, dressmaking and fabric construction. Home is in Henderson Valley with partner Phil and fur friend Woody.
