ABOUT WAYNE COSTAR
I am a multimedia carver, working mostly with jade (greenstone or Pounamu). My greatest passion is stone, primarily jade, although wood, shells, fossil ivory, whalebone, tagua nut (vegetable ivory) and many other treasures also wait in the corners of my workshop.
My carving is inspired by nature and the beauty and forms that surround us. Being a Cancerian, flows, curves and spirals reminiscent of water feature a lot in my creations.
In 1994, I was introduced to traditional Maori musical instruments (Taonga Pūoro) at the first "Taonga Pūoro" Wananga (=workshop) at Onetahua Mara. There we were taught how to make Karanga Manu and Koauau using local soapstone and shown how to play them.
A whole new world of music opened before me which was the start of a journey that continues to amaze me.
