Breath of Life - Pūtorino


*Prices quoted are CDN$ equivalent of USD$, exchange rate on the day will apply.

What makes the Pūtorino special is its ability to create male and female sounds. The trumpeting male note and the softer feminine sound of the flute creating a blend of the two. Breath of life is about two cultures coming together to produce works that are harmonic together.

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.
