Thomas Carroll - Raukatauri

Ngāti Maru artist Thomas Carroll explores the form and function of Pūtōrino
in a series dedicated to the atua of Maori flute music, Hine Raukatauri.
While holding true to the traditional understanding of the pūtōrino making
process , Thomas will be exploring the vast range of forms the Pūtōrino
can take, both traditional and contemporary.

Michelle Hinekura Kerr - Pura Pura Whetu

Pura Pura Whetu consists of woven sculpture and harakeke beads, of which
Michelle has been developing for the past 5 years. The name Pura Pura Whetu
is a traditional weaving pattern and symbolizes the numerous starts in the heavens.
Pura Pura Whetu was inspired by pūrākau (traditional Māori narratives) that
describe how the celestial bodies were created and brought into the world of light.
