Māori used the stars as a means of navigation. Things change, lands move and the earth rotates. The stars were consistent and became the reference points that Māori based their navigation on.

I would like this to be interpreted as a moon reflecting a calm benevolence. We are illuminated by the sun and the moon. It’s more of a metaphorical and lyrical title that describes the form.

Collaboration for the Fire & Water: Pacific Visions in Glass and Jade exhibition, 2007.

Collaborations between great artists are historically rare, despite frequent attempts and enthusiastic interest to bring technical skills and artistic chemistry together. In the end, it often seems that personal careers, distance, and other issues make these projects too difficult to realize. What makes this particular collaboration even more remarkable is that the two artists are geographically in different hemispheres — almost at polar opposites of the world.
