Pam Griffin Food Platters that have been modelled from a root of the giant kauri tree. They are a native breed of New Zealand that are said to be more than 1000 years old. Pam Griffin Food Platters from Art Market have been carved out of a tree that fell down as many as 100 years ago. Kauri is a living ‘taonga’. Taonga means treasure in Maori and these trees have the ability to live for thousands of years.
When the Maoris arrived in Aotearoa the northern parts of New Zealand have a number of kauri trees. But these are facing threat of deforestation. The company offers kauri products that should be kept away from sunlight to safeguard them. They should be polished with olive oil so that they can be kept in good condition.
