 A beautiful cast glass Tūī made by Lukeke Design.

Lukeke Design was established by Luke Jacomb in 2006. Based in Auckland, Lukeke Design produce an affordable range of handmade cast and blown glass works.

Unique to New Zealand the Tūī belong to the honeyeater family, feeding on nectar from flowers of native plants. They are common throughout New Zealand living anywhere from native forests to bush reserves. They imitate the songs of other birds, and can also imitate people. The birds were sometimes tamed and taught to speak. They were taught mihi (greetings) which they would recite when visitors arrived, as well as prayers and proverbs. They were often trained to sound like the loud and deep voice of a chief. A Tūī that spoke like this was called a manu rangatira – a chiefly bird. Sometimes a Tūī was named after a tribe’s famous ancestor, and kept by the chief.

Each work is individually crafted and cast so may vary slightly in colour due to the nature of being handcrafted. Easy to install, each bird has a permanently attached screw that turns into the wall anchor provided with purchase.
