Deep Orange Glass Waka Huia  | Mike Cameron

This stunning piece is not only designed to hold treasure, it is a beautiful treasure itself. Featuring a hand-carved swamp Kauri lid, the body is deep orange cast lead crystal glass sitting on a Totara wood base. 


The carvings on both bowl and lid are a mixture of contemporary Maori and Celtic patterns to show the migration and sea voyage of the Nordic people to the Pacific. New Zealand is now such a multicultural country and as we need to hold onto our own culture, language and beliefs we need to embrace others and move forward as a country.

Kia whakatomuri te haere whakamua - I walk backwards into the future with my eyes fixed on my past. Indicating the concept of moving forwards in the future from learning from the mistakes of the past.

The Waka Huia, once hidden amongst the beams of a Whare to store precious Taonga, such as birds’ feathers.

Caring for your artwork

HANGING YOUR ART - Where possible, hang your artwork with two wall mounted hangers fixed to wall studs or wall anchors when necessary. Do not hang your artwork in direct sunlight or in a room with large temperature variations.

CLEANING -  Clean glass with a non-ammonia based glass cleaner with a microfiber cloth. Avoid spraying cleaner directly on the artwork. Dust your paintings & frames with a clean, soft rag occasionally to prevent dust build-up. Do not use cleaning products or water.

LOCATION - Hang your artworks away from very busy & possibly messy areas. Over time, artworks can accumulate a thin layer of dust, pollutants & airborne grime. Display your artworks in a less exposed area affected by these.

STORAGE - Prevent accidents & store your artworks away from anything that may press against the surface. Do not cover artworks with plastic for long periods of time. If there is humidity in the air, they may start to grow mold. Cotton sheets are best for keeping dust away.

PREVENTION - Try avoid subjecting your artworks to extreme changes in atmosphere. Avoid excessive dryness, humidity, heat or cold. Check the condition of your artworks periodically. Once hung up there is a tendency to forget about it until noticeable damage has occurred. If you notice the artwork is fading or cracking, move it to a better place & avoid further damage.

WE CAN HELP - If your artwork does get damaged, return the piece back to The Poi Room and we can advise the best course of action for you.
