Te Kāhui o Matariki includes the work of 41 leading contemporary Māori artists who explore the star constellation Matariki means to them. The appearance of Matariki in early winter signifies many things, including the end of one year-long cycle and the start of another.
The artists all created works for the book, including paintings, sculpture, weaving, carving, clay work and mixed media.
Includes artwork from: Rex Homan, Sandy Adsett, Chris Bailey, Gabrielle Belz, Chris Karaitiana Bryant, Paerau Corneal, Todd Couper, Lewis Tamihana Gardiner, Steve Gibbs, Stacy Gordine, Fred Graham, June Northcroft Grant, Ross Hemera, Derek Lardelli, Alex Nathan, Manos Nathan, Darcy Nicholas, Baye Riddell, Hemi Sundgren, Roi Toia, and Colleen Waata Urlich.

Te Popoto o Ngā Puhi Ki Kaipara
Largely self-taught, Colleen developed her interest in pottery while completing an art major at Auckland Teachers College. She continued to experiment during the 1970s, encouraged by Alec Musha, one of the first Māori potters. She believes strongly in tradition, decorating with traditional Māori weaving patterns or by adding muka (flax fibre), feathers or shell to her works. For her, “working with clay means working with the body of Mother Earth, she who influences and sustains us physically and spiritually.”
