The cup and saucer were made by Bob Steiner, a renowned New Zealand ceramic artist to celebrate the Air New Zealand 75th anniversary. The piece was inspired by Crown Lynn designed china produced for Air New Zealand first class passengers on the DC 8 in 1965.air-nz-crownlynn

The Maori motif is a reproduction of the elaborately carved “tohora” or whale which traditionally appeared on the fascia boards of the tribal storehouses. It signifies “abundance.”

Lighting for Indoors

Mid winter Christmas and Matariki are almost here. As we stay indoors longer we look around for some new inspiration. The patio light that had the candle in has morphed to become an electric light creating an ambience indoors. Pictured are three cuba lights – sapphire blue, lemon yellow and a bone white. Lovely for the dark winter nights.
