This design brings together two art forms found in a Māori Whare Whakairo (carved house): kowhaiwhai represent genealogy, and parata representing the qualities of a specific tipuna (ancestor). As such, this work can represent anyone significant to you. This beautiful work is cast in ceramics from an original wood carving and fired with a range of colourful glazes. These forms explore the fusion of traditional whakairo (carving) and the potter’s kiln.
