WATCH PAT GEORGE DISCUSS HER CREATIVE PROCESS FOR ONE OF HER LARGE SCALE COMMUNITY COMMISSIONED PIECES > WINDOWS OF NORTHLAND
WINDOWS OF NORTHLAND - Te Kotuku
The "Windows of Northland" mosaic fills the entrance-way to the Te Kotuku Maternity Ward at the Whangarei Hospital.
Commissioned by Northland District Health Board and overseen by Jeanette Wedding, GM of Northland DHB Maternal and Child Health Services.
The 2016 project was a large undertaking, consisting of several panels, created with various mixed mediums, such as ceramics, clay work and glass.
Pat George designed each panel to showcase a different aspect of the beautful landscapes, heritage and culture of New Zealand's Northland.
As a special touch two tiles on the entrance-way, feature the names of the first two babies born at the new Te Kotuku Maternity Ward.
