Best of the Best Designers Speak® 2022 - Video - Te Ahi Tupua

Stacy Gordine (Ngāti Porou), Eraia Kiel (Te Arawa, Waikato, Rongomaiwahine) - New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts

Inspired in part by camera footage captured from deep within the world famous Pōhutu Geyser, the design pays homage to its rich natural features – the vortex reflecting different forms of geothermal energy – steam vents, heat, flames and eruption. Inspiration also came from the Māori concept of kaitiakitanga o te whenua - guardianship of natural resources.
