"These new collaborative works on recycled oak wine barrel boards are based on the shared philosophy and principles of the Kaitiaki from throughout the South Pacific. The symbolisms aren’t just an aesthetic, they narrate - by design - the oldest forms and thinking from our Ali’i, a signal to us that the kauapa hasn’t changed and that collectively through the social responsibility we remain the guardians of our environment." Michel Tuffery

Crafted from recycled french oak wine-barrels, this board was design and made by The Paper Rain Project in Marlborough, New Zealand.
This board is a wall-hanging artwork and comes equipped with a fitting suitable for a standard picture hook or nail.
From each recycled winebarrel, we create 4 - 5 boards. For each board crafted, a native tree is planted. Thank you for helping us with native forest regeneration in NZ
One of New Zealand’s most well known artists, Michel is a renowned printmaker, painter & sculpture who has made a major contribution to art world-wide. You may know Michel for his life-size ‘Pisupo lua afe (Corned beef)’, a cow constructed from flattened, riveted corn beef tins & currently in Te Papa Museum.
Michel’s work is shaped by his research into, and encounters with his Polynesian heritage while making use of Māori design. Michel is a lovely, laid back & inspiring man whom we are stoked to have onboard as a contributing artist with our wine- barrel boards and CAUSE projects.
