The Glorit-based Kaipara Kiwi sanctuary is hosting a pop up exhibition at the Mairangi Bay Arts Centre as part of its fundraising efforts this year.
Sixteen north and west Auckland artists have produced one-of-a-kind ceramic eggs, which will be auctioned.
The eggs will be up for auction on the Kiwis for Kiwi Trade Me account from October 21.
An exhibition event will be held at the Mairangi Bay Arts Centre on Saturday, October 31, from 4pm until 6pm, at which time the Trade Me auctions will close.
Also being auctioned is a retro pillow designed by Warkworth artist Glenys Wech. It features a Kiwi motif on a cover recycled from a woollen blanket.
The Kaipara Kiwi sanctuary has around 80 Kiwi birds thanks to careful conservation efforts.
Nesting season has begun and Kaipara Kiwi is fundraising to meet the substantial costs of replacing radio tracking collars and maintaining traps to safeguard Kiwi and their eggs.
