The Products

The products are inspired by wisdom, love and the desire for all beings to be happy. 

Inspired by nature, love and wisdom

 

While the art of bone-craft has existed in most cultures throughout history, the stories, legends and much of the symbolic representation is buried with those who created these ancient pieces. 

However in New Zealand bone carving is still practiced widely.

As mentioned by legendary carver Stephen Myhre, “the elements of structure, ritual and myth are common to all cultures, but in the Pacific basin the carvers are intimately involved with these because they are the holders and teachers of knowledge about the spiritual parts of reality”.

Each carving comes with a detailed description of its meaning and symbolism. 

Carvings are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the myself  (the Artist) and each piece is registered in my database of work.   

 

Earth-Friendly Practices

Every effort is made to only use ethically positive and environmentally sustainable materials and resources. 

 

Guarantee

I guarantee all my work. If you are not happy with it for any reason, you may return it.  (See terms and conditions).

Giving Back

Each creation has been blessed. It is traditional in New Zealand for carvings to be blessed before wearing it or giving it away.
