Product story

For customers with a taste for the rare and special, the RA team has sourced a range of original contemporary art works and unique pieces, direct from artists and makers in Aotearoa and the Pacific Islands. The result is an extraordinary and unique collection of limited-edition art works and one-off pieces of glass, ceramics, weaving, fabric, cloth painting, carving, sculpture and jewellery.  The exhibition provides an opportunity to acquire very special pieces that have not been available in the UK before, and which showcase techniques and materials largely unknown in Europe.

Evelyn Dunstan is a distinguished glass artist from Aotearoa. These cast glass boxes are created using the lost wax technique.

The lid of the box is cast from Paua Shell, which is found in New Zealand and is iconic of the region. The base of the box displays a Koru motif – a stylised plant widely used in Māori art and design.
