Founded in 2004 by its current director Ian Bracegirdle, Motherworks is a unique art, design and construction facility servicing the diverse requirements of Museums, Zoos, Public Art and the Architectural industry. Acknowledged widely as industry leaders over the last thirty years through the legacy of its predecessor, Mothers Art Productions, the multi-disciplinary team have a wealth of experience in generating and executing ideas for exciting and highly engaging works. Its ethos is to provide a platform for artists to work closely with graphic, industrial designers, and trades based contractors whilst ensuring client satisfaction and embedding positive project outcomes.
This synergy of experience, skill and imagination enables Motherworks to plan, design, project manage, fabricate and install work in a collaborative and streamlined process from conception through to completion.
The team at Motherworks have extensive experience in design, fabrication and installation of interpretive projects in urban and remote environments. We collaborate with urban planners, architects and landscape architects from design through to installation.
Our commitment to excellence has earned Motherworks a reputation for innovation, combining an artistic sensibility with precise design execution. We ensure a strong visual experience with due consideration to access, operational safety and durability. The visual impact and quality of our work is self-evident and is supported by clients’ testimonials. The overwhelming public response to projects such as the Commonwealth Games River Event and Auckland Zoo’s Tea Wao Nui demonstrates their significant visual impact and lasting appeal.
