The sculpture is being made at the south end of Cherry Walk, in the Rhododendron Dell.
Ms Fitzharris said she wanted to put a familiar domestic shape in a public space that was managed for the benefit of everyone.
The sculpture would eventually be a vase-shape and stand close to 2m high.
The clay being used had been dug up from the nearby car park and sticks from around the garden were being used for the base of the sculpture.
"It’s the idea of transforming these common materials and things we have around us into something else."
Her work is funded by Dunedin Dream Brokerage’s new "Off the Ground" initiative, which was a response to the impact Covid-19 had on artists.
Broker Charlotte Parallel said the idea was to help artists get their "stranded" projects back off the ground and into the community.
Ms Fitzharris was working on the sculpture over the weekend and she expected to return again today.
