Stonepeace/ Kōhatu Hūmārie, the Haumoana studio she shares with husband Stephen Wheeler, was designed by her architect father J.C. Scott. Ema, who is of Māori (Te Arawa, Ngāti Whakaue, Te Āti Awa, Ngāti Raukawa) and Irish/Scottish descent, says a connection to her family and “design by descent” informs her work. “I'm led by my beautiful ancestors, my whakapapa of creativity. It was after I started my work around peace that I found out we whakapapa back to the Parihaka movement. It was meant to be.” 9 Haumoana Road, Haumoana. (06) 875 0727, stonepeace.co.nz
