Our work reflects our connection to papatuanuku (the land) and our whakapapa (ancestral lineages).

You can ask us.  It depends on what you want.

All our pieces made to be hung on the wall have a wire hook on the back that has been fired into the clay for easy hanging.  Our celestial and moon phase hangings are hung from a circle with an empty middle, this easily fits any sized nail.

We would not recommend hanging our celestial or moon phase hangings outside but everything else can be.
