Toetoe Bowl

A blown glass object from photosensitive glass with color overlay. The imagery is created by the shadow of toetoe flowers.

Toetoe are New Zealand native plants with long, grassy leaves and a fine edge and saw-like teeth. Flowers are white, feathery, arching plumes. They grow on sand dunes, on rocks and cliff faces, along streams and swamp edges. The plant has many traditional uses in Mãori culture including as a building material as well as medicinal.
