AUCKLAND NEW ZEALAND - World famous inventor and pioneer of
Flowforms, John Wilkes, shared his craft with our designer, Iain
Trousdell, who was the second sculptor in the world to spend several
years in the UK working alongside John. In addition to implementing the
sensitive skills of Flowform design, Iain's apprenticeship involved a deep
study of the organic and inorganic forms nature makes, and the patterns
it follows in transforming through time in space. An award-winning
ceramic artist, Iain has been an active Flowform designer for 25 years as
well as a member of the Flow Design Research Group.
Now, with the newly engineered, beautiful stone-effect Flowforms,
www.flow-forms.com is increasing interest from clients globally along
with a capacity to freight anywhere they happen to be. Flowforms are able
to support any installation artistically, technically and scientifically.
Flowforms have been designed and supplied to many countries from New
Zealand since 1979. Well over 20 different new Flowforms designs have
been created here, forming the basis of over 200 different landscape and
water treatment projects in NZ alone. In addition, our NZ Flowforms have
been installed in Europe, America, Australia, Japan, India, Taiwan and the
Pacific Islands. We have also been successfully commissioned to create
seven major city-centre sculptures throughout New Zealand.
Flowforms are presently designing new Flowforms, especially as small
models for inside the house and for small garden spaces. They make
these Flowforms available for viewing on their website www.flow-
This website is being constantly adapted as a global information facility
for garden, interior home, and water treatment Flowform sales, delivered
