New Zealand Glass Art Waka

Take a piece of New Zealand home with a New Zealand Glass Art Waka from Lava Glass. Waka is the Māori word for canoe. Hundreds of years ago, NZ’s Māori arrived by waka from far off South Pacific islands. At that time they were among the world’s greatest canoe builders and navigators. Our waka are inspired by small, unornamented waka that are used for fishing and river travel (waka tīwai).

The little glass art canoes are 18cm long and available in various beautiful colours.
