A local talent and good friend, Emma’s amazing work has graced the Nikau store (and grid) since we opened and we are always singing her song in store. Fascinated by different cultures, the people themselves and their adornment, rituals and where they live, Emma translates their world through the eyes (and hands) of her own.
Her recent trip to Ethiopia has influenced her latest sculptures for Symbology, taking on tribal elements, with strong shapes, thick lines whilst using raw, tough and gritty surfaces to bring these pieces to life.
