Kahu Design is a New Zealand based studio that specialises in unique hand-made pieces intimately connected with nature and NZ heritage. In a world of mass produced generic, price based production, Kahu Design is inspired by a philosophy of life whereby they strive to create meaningful connections. Based on symbolism and stories that offer an expression of the human need to connect to each other and our environment.  

Kahu Design is the work of Auckland-based artist, Te Rongo Kirkwood (Waikato, Taranaki, Te Wai-o-Hua, Te Kawerau, Ngāi Tai ki Tamaki) works with fused glass, textile, and other media to create objects that blur the lines between sculpture, craft, and personal adornment. Kirkwood combines glass with more traditional fibres and each glass element features its own language of symbol and pattern. Kirkwood draws upon her Māori and Scots heritage, and the natural world and celestial themes for creative inspiration; her use of natural materials and kiln-formed glass fuses multiple artistic traditions and techniques.
