Claudia Aalderink


Forerunner in her design and constantly reinventing the possibilities of her medium, Claudia Aalderink balances the tricky combination of producing her own works and running her Gordonton based gallery, The Mandarin Tree.

Predominantly using recycled materials from beehives, Claudia’s work is a cohesive blend of texture and colour within a reduced visual vocabulary of circles, squares, rectangles, and lines. Working from her Kihikihi workshop Claudia is constantly creating new work for upcoming exhibitions, supplying her own gallery or working on commissioned pieces.
