Isaac Weston - Bio

Isaac Weston is a full time copper artist who lives in Matua, Tauranga with his wife Lara and their two fur kids.


Isaac's design process incorporates acids, salts and sunlight to reveal the hidden elements of copper. Light, darkness, texture and vivid patinas emerge through this alchemy. He enjoys working with metals and drawing out the organic beauty of this medium. Isaac's creative expression ranges from sculpture to wall art. He produces high quality gallery work and is constantly inspired by the changing textures and colours of the materials he crafts from. When engaged to create a commission piece, Isaac works closely with his clients to capture their vision.


Isaac has been a full time artist for 7 years and has exhibited at the Incubator Gallery in Tauranga. His art works feature in permanent public gardens at the Tauranga Historic Village, Tauranga Racecourse and the Te Puna Quarry Park. They also appeared in magazines, online news stories and on TV.  One of his 1.6mt Copper Patina Art Circle featured in the winning lounge room on The Block NZ 2021.


He has been a guest artist at the Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival for 2018, 2020 and again in November 2022. 

Isaac's fine wall work can be viewed at art galleries throughout New Zealand. 

His range of garden sculpture, jewellery and smaller wall art is promoted under the name ""

His latest work can be viewed by appointment, at the Isaac Weston Art Gallery at 10 Sunny Bay Road, Matua Tauranga.
