Biography

Wi Taepa is a master of Māori clay art, with a career spanning over 30 years. Taepa is celebrated for his unique practice - his works are predominantly hand built using coil, slab or pinch pot techniques. The artist has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, including a solo exhibition at City Gallery Te Whare Toi Wellington in 2012 and a retrospective in 2018 at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. Taepa first showed his work at Sanderson in 2019 - we are delighted to present a new suite of ceramics in Te Hā o te Marama in collaboration with Simon Kaan.
