ABOUT WAYNE COSTAR
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.
