Sculpture Park Carlucci Land

I recently returned to my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand after four years of living in London to find my neighbour had become a sort of local celebrity. I just had to capture this on film!

“From Mini Golf, to Stone Masonry, to Cherished junk”

Carl Gifford is the charismatic personality behind Carlucci Land. His passion for the environment is matched by his passion for the creative and he has become a household name to Wellington locals. Carl has been in business for over 25 years, progressing from a successful career as a mechanic, to the artist and campaigner he is known as today. His creative path began when he turned his hand to masonry beautifully formed stone walls using locally sourced materials. It wasn’t long before Carl began to look at his medium from a unique perspective, truly understand the physical attributes of the rocks he was working with and how to apply their raw value to works of art. His enthusiastic delivery has captured the imaginat hundreds of thousands of visitors to Carlucci Land, from the inception of his great vision, where a few of his sculptures guarded the entry to Owhiro Bay from Happy Valley Road, to the grand Sculpture Park Carlucci Land is today.
