Story behind the design:
"At certain times of the year schools of sardine swim around and under the Kerriri (Hammond Island, TSI) wharf. The sardines are jigged by hand and used as live bait for fishing from the wharf. On one holiday visit to Kerriri my family went fishing together. At that time my youngest son was 3 years old. He caught a sardine on his line, made friends with it and decided to keep him safe in his pocket. It was a couple of hours later that we discovered and met his new friend. The give away was the wet and slightly smelly patch around his shorts pocket. ‘Sardines under the Wharf’ as a concept was developed to preserve the special memory I have of my son and his aquatic friend."
