Made from pure mountain - Ahumata rock sculpture in collaboration w/ blacksmith Manuka Davenport
Art for Contemplation
From a series of collaborative sculptures with metalworker, Manuka Davenport. Taking and firing pieces of the mountain that have eroded, and then embellishing them with frond-like wrought steel, creating monuments to the mountain, Ahumata. We acknowledge the traditional kaitiaki of the mountain, Ahumata: Ngāti Rehua Ngātiwai ki Aotea.
This piece is entitled Dreams of Falling, and can be hung on the wall, or stand freely.
