BRETT RANGITAAWA

"Molten metal has always fascinated me; its behaviour and capability demanding skill and respect to craft. My life's work as a foundryman - engineering and casting works for the design and art industries - enables and inspires my career as a metal artist." Brett Rangitaawa Te Atiawa, Taranaki; Ngati Raukawa, Waikato
