Ceramic - Kete Aronui with Koru
Beautifully handcrafted using locally sourced clays. Each piece is individually handmade, so no two are the same.
Kete Aronui - basket of knowledge of aroha, peace and the arts and crafts which benefit the Earth and all living things - one of the three baskets of knowledge. This basket relates to knowledge acquired through careful observation of the environment. It is also the basket of ritual, of literature, philosophy and is sometimes regarded as the basket of the humanities.
The Koru depicts new beginnings, growth & harmony. Early Maori saw the lifecycle of the similar to that of man. The tight koru depicts a baby. As the child matures, so does the Koru, slowly unfolding into adulthood.
