The Transmogrifier Collection features works by Gisborne-based designer Katy Wallace. Each piece of furniture has been crafted using secondhand objects as the material for a newly designed object.

This collection is the result of the ongoing project ‘Transmogrifier’ – an experimental process that Katy Wallace began in in 2008, and which was funded by Creative New Zealand. Each piece of furniture has been crafted using discarded and secondhand objects as the source material for a newly designed one-off object. Wallace says of this process, “ I use the Transmogrifier Machine to bring personality and emotion to the pieces I make – I want to give them a story and to engage people in that narrative”.

The exhibition at Objectspace comprises 60 hand-crafted objects such as tables, chairs, drawers. Each piece of furniture reveals the maker’s highly original touch. The Transmogrifier objects are both useable and collectable. Following the exhibition at Objectspace, these works will be sold at the auction house Art + Object.
