David Trubridge - Kina

David Trubridge

The Kina references the inner shell of the local salt water sea-urchin. David once came across a kina shell in Antarctica – an exquisite jewel that had sunk into a tiny hollow in the sea ice. The shell had absorbed enough warmth from the sun to melt the ice around it.

The Kina is often placed in living rooms, entrance voids, bedrooms and dining tables. Depending on your space, we can suggest an appropriate size.
