The making of a memorial
Halayna and her siblings wanted to present their mum and dad a sculpture for Christmas.
After considering sculptures we had available she asked if we could produce a sculpture based on her own design (a sketch on a 3 inch piece of paper) before Christmas. She sketched a beautiful koru design that reflected their parents, the four children sitting on a base with a pattern that represents current and future mokopuna.
I wasn't sure whether be able to achieve her smaller design elements but they came out great in the end.
