by David Trubridge
Kina is the Maori name for the local sea-urchin. Under the spines the shell is shaped like this with similar surface patterns. David Trubridge was inspired after seeing a tiny one in Antarctica, sunk in the sea ice in a hollow that was made when the shell absorbed the warmth from the sun and melted the ice around it - an exquisite jewel. The Kina comes in kitset to reduce the impact of freight on the environment.
