Pohutukawa Vase 2

There is a range of unique vases in the ‘Pohutukawa Series.' These colorful objects are made using the techniques of double incalmo (constructed of three separate blown glass elements) further adorned with colored glass thread.

All objects in the series pay homage to New Zealand native Pohutukawa which is a coastal evergreen tree. Every year around Christmas time the tree produces a brilliant display of crimson flowers made up of a mass of stamens. A phenomena that made it New Zealand's unofficial Christmas tree. Pohutukawa is regarded as a chiefly tree (rākau rangatira) by Māori.
