This set is part of a much larger project. My wife Roz has created her first book, a childrens book called Sand in my toes salt in my nose. It is about a classic kiwi beach holiday. As a part of the project I have created a set of pounamu representing core elements of each page on the pukapuka. You can buy the book in both English and Te Reo Māori at rosalindpotter.com.
The entire set is made from the same piece of pounamu. It has gorgeous watery blue green inanga in it surrounded by more earthy colours and inclusions.
Below is the artwork of each page without the words of the book, along with the matching pounamu for that page. All the beautiful art work is from Ginney Deavoll, a good friend and amazing artist. Click on them to see more of each pounamu.
