Creative & Brave: Matariki - Borrowed Earth Studio Visit
Matariki has always been a very special event for Creative & Brave.
It is an important time for personal reflection, for taking that little bit of time that you need for yourself and for your family. A time to just be with those you love and remember those who have passed.
It is also a time to prepare for the onset of winter and ensure you and those in your community are all stocked up for the colder months. Traditionally this is a time of harvest, of gifting food, and planning or preparing the ground for the new year's crops.
The night sets in pretty quickly now so there will be many opportunities to head out into the darkness and stare up at the Matariki cluster as she fires up the night sky. The seven sisters of Matariki, the seven stars are a constant recurring event on our yearly cycle. They were there for the first star gazers to notice and they are here for us still.
Creative & Brave are celebrating Matariki this year with a very special collection of hand made ceramics by Adele and Richie at Borrowed Earth. They have been a part of the Creative & Brave whanau for many years and have delighted audiences with every collection of their exquisitely hand made ceramics. Their themes are often deep in nature but artfully translated into engaging and often enchanting creations.
Adele and Richie have bravely surmounted a life changing event which kept them from their studio, artistic practice and livelihood for over a year. Seeing shelves and walls empty of their works was a solemn reminder of the challenges they were facing.
But just like Matariki re-appearing and captivating us with her gems, Adele and Rich have come back with an incredible collection of ceramics for Matariki 2021.
