Designed by Jo Ogier & constructed by Robyn Hall (Vitrific) & Glass Craft of Nelson
This leadlight window was designed for the Tasman Bays Heritage Trust Town Acre 445 building, located on the corner of Trafalgar and Hardy Streets. The design featuring indigenous flora and fauna from the Nelson region was made in the format of a large weaving to highlight the interconnected and interwoven qualities of the flora and fauna of the area and it also references the Maori ancestry through the inclusion of the local iwi kowhaiwhai design and tukutuku panels. The reef knot and lighthouse represents the European immigrants who travelled on the early sailing ships and settled in the Nelson region.
There are 40 individual panels making up Weave, with 8,400 pieces of glass & 700 metres of lead came. The glass is mainly hand-rolled art glass, some of which is no longer made.
