Tom Carroll

We are honoured to introduce to you the talented Whanganui based Maori artist and musician Tom Carroll. Tom’s background as a sculptor and musician led him to Nga Taonga Pūoro – Māori wind instruments. Over seven years Tom has refined his carving and playing skills since reading a book on Māori instruments. Tom works in found materials and native timbers using traditional and modern methods of construction. His mahi explores ideas around lost traditions and the potential of technology in the evolution of tradition.
