Ocarina Puoro


1 piece in stock.

Ocarina Puoro are 3D printed vessel flutes embellished with traditional kōwhaiwhai patterns.

They are not traditional Māori instruments, but the patterns are based on a whai (stingray) - a significant creature in Te Moana nui a Kiwa that represents protection, wit, and adaptability.

Each colourway is printed with a special gradient, iridescent filament inspired by the 4 seasons, Raumati, Ngahuru, Kōanga and Hōtoke - and also two new colourways, Pango and Mā.

Ocarina Puoro are made from 100% PLA plant-based bioplastic and renewable natural resources such as corn starch and tapioca products. 
All waste material from production is then used in the production of 100% recycled plastic panels.

Designed and produced by Vaka, an Auckland based education company. Each comes with an info card.

Watch the creator of Ocarina Puoro - Jesse Armstrong, Ngāti Hine - play the instrument HERE

DISCLAIMER: These are not traditional Taonga Puoro and Ocarina are not of Māori origin. Ocarina have origins from various cultures including Central America, Europe and Asia.
