By NICOLA MURPHY It wouldn t hold your tea very well but Ami Newby s leather mug has won her the top prize at the Portage Mug Show. Ms Newby entered show for the second time this year and was excited to receive first place with her leather sculp- ture, titled Koru Mug. The Waipu resident, who previously lived in Titirangi for 35 years, says it was wonderful to take out the top prize. The win has made her $1000 richer but she doesn t know how to spend the money yet. I ll probably use it to buy more leather because it s very expensive, she says. The mother-of-two remem- bers watching her father work with leather when she was a child and as she grew older she started fashioning her own pieces. By the time Ms Newby s children started school she could make their schoolbags and sandals. When she moved to Waipu around 15 years ago she switched her focus to jewel- lery and ornamental pieces such as bowls, urns and mirrors from leather. I love the smell of it, she says. Ms Newby s work as a leather artist has taken her around the world and she was won numerous awards including the top prize at an international leather festival in Dallas, Texas. Mug show co-judge Dan Chappell says they chose Ms Newby s piece because it was the one they kept coming back to as they were looking at all the entries.
