2. FEELING OAR RIGHT - Hawke’s Bay artist Leanne Culy loves to mix traditional Maori colours of black, brown, red and white with the bright pacific colours. “Although my oars look purely decorative, they do tell a story, as a totem would, and for me show the impact of European settlers on the land. They often focus on the positive but with and underlying note of concern. I often focus on nostalgic images of New Zealand. I also add Maori images and manipulate them, as a symbol of togetherness. I will fill a Tiki with roses or wrap a Maori artefact in lace, for example.”

PERFECT TIMING - Brititish-born, Queenstown-based designer Ed Cruikshank’s bespoke creatitions range from simple functitional items to conceptual objects that blur the boundary between furniture and art.

The Braille reads: “How precious each tick – another beat of your heart”.
