Welcome to Swirl-StoNZ by Claire


This site is dedicated to my Swirl-StoNZ, created from coloured polymer modelling clay. In addition to any current news, you can discover more about what they can be used for, how I make them, the design variations, look at the photo gallery, and find out where to buy or see them at events.

20.10.2021 Next market will be this Labour Weekend - Sunday 24 October

Due to the rainy weather forecast for this Sunday, I will be bringing a reduced set up. I will have a whole new collection of Swirl-StoNZ, including some made up into gift items, but I am not risking my new display panels (as they were designed for indoor events). I will need to work on making a waterproof cover, if I am to take them to future outdoor markets.

23.08.2021 Proposed Sunday Markets Cancelled - awaiting Covid vaccinations

I am not sure when the Whangamata Sunday Market will resume, due to the current Covid Lockdown, but I have made the decision to wait until I have had both of my Covid vaccinations before attending the market again. My first vaccination is booked for 12 September 2021 and my second vaccination on 10 October 2021. I am hoping that these dates are not changed, so I will be ready for Labour Weekend (24 October 2021), with a whole new display set up and plenty of new Swirl-StoNZ.


03.01.2021 Whangamata Sunday Market for 2021

 Welcome to 2021. Swirl-StoNZ will be at the Whangamata Sunday Market on the first Sunday of the month (unless at another event and subject to reasonable weather), until further notice. Additional dates and other events will be listed on the ‘SHOP’ tab.
