 ‘He korowai tūī’, 2004

Nā Kōhai Grace tēnei korowai i mahi, he tauira pai mō te whakamahi rauemi, tikanga hōu kia ora ai ngā toi tawhito o te Māori. Tāpirihia atu ai ngā tae hōu me te konukura (copper) ki te harakeke. E ai ki a Kōhai Grace, ‘Noho ai au ki tōku kāinga i te taha moana. Ia rā ka haere mai ngā tūī ki tōku kāinga. Nā reira, ko te taiao tonu te kaiwhāngai i ahau ki ngā ariā mō aku mahi toi.’
