This form is a symbol of the movement of Māori and Northwest Coast people across the Pacific and the friendships and relationships that have formed through art and culture. The sharing of culture and art forms is important as it inspires one’s own individual practice. The taurapa (canoe stern) form is important acting as a balance for the waka (canoe). Like in life without the right whanau (family) support, the balance between family and work cannot be achieved.

My design is a human ancestral 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.
