I've been fortunate to have a few forays into New Zealand this year, and love the usage of fernleaves in design work over there. Anything from a lowly stormwater drain cover to popular civic art can display the elegant fern, often with a gorgeously decorative Maori slant. Ferns and ferniness have been playing on my mind, and so I got to sculpting some....
This is a sneak-preview of a larger range that I'm still completing, but this set will be available as a Peace On Earth hunt gift this Chrismas. It starts on the 1st of December, and continues through the month.
Harikoa- happiness...joyfulness...euphoria. This is the best word I can find to express something suitable for Christmas. There are Maori terms that borrow more directly from English to say "Merry Christmas" but I rather like this instead :)
If you do the POE Hunt this year, you will find the store...but of course pop in for a visit anytime.
