Hudson Mabwe is a talented and hardworking man. His wire and bead creations are a familiar sight near the Spur on the R40. White River folk might have noticed that the animal lights we put up for last year’s #nightofthelights were Hudson’s handiwork.
He is a prolific producer of animals and plants in a variety of sizes, his largest being a 2.5 metre elephant.
The Zebra is his favourite, but Rhinos are the most popular amongst his customers, who include visitors from America, Britain and Singapore – so Hudson is helping spread Slowveld charm around the world!
He and his wife Stacey have lived in the area since 2009 and they have three children. Hudson says he learnt his craft from his two brothers – they clearly taught him well!
First prize for Hudson and Stacey would be to find a better place to base his business; “Hope Creative Art” these creations. If anyone has any ideas then you can get hold of him at 071 7436650
