Peter Bishop

Peter comes from the wild west coast of New Zealand's South Island.
He is one of New Zealand's best known and most skilled master carvers
and works mostly in the very rare and exotic flower Pounamu (New Zealand Jade) creating designs for jewelry and sculptures with an extraordinary aura of power and beauty.

Many of these special pieces are custom carvings with unique patterns in the jade that can not be repeated and therefore do not appear in our main catalogue. Some of the basic "design elements" may be repeated but the colour, pattern and texture of the special jades from which each is carved makes most pieces very unique.
Photographs shown on this page are of the actual pieces being offered.

Once each piece sells it will be removed from our site permanently.

Please Note - Some examples on the jade pages show the carvings with a degree of back lighting to illustrate their luminosity.
This is how they look when held up to a light so they may appear a darker shade of green when held in the hand or worn against the skin.

All carvings are supplied complete with a traditional style cord & bag.
Most cords are hand made from black waxed braid with a loop and bone toggle fitted. A woven flax presentation case and information on the meaning of the design is also included.
Cords & Packing Detail

Fast airmail shipping worldwide is now just US$6.95 for up to 5 pendants.
As these carvings can never be replaced if lost in transit, we highly recommend choosing one of the courier delivery options.
All pricing is in US$

Large Pounamu Carvings

These very special and spectacular carvings are large collectors pieces that can be used for display, framed or worn.    For the right person and right occasion however they need to be worn and touched for their real power to be known.
Large ceremonial carvings like this were worn by Maori warriors and tribal chieftains as a mark of leadership and status within the tribe. Many Maori and some Pakeha still wear large carvings likes these today.

Carving size - 115mm Long (4 1/2 inches)
One Only Available
$985
By Peter Bishop

This exquisite Matau represents a strong leader who leads with compassion and understanding, being a guardian for those who follow.  It also shows someone with a great passion for the oceans from which all life springs and for the land of our birth.
This carving with its traditional bindings and exceptional craftsmanship is displayed on a piece of swamp drift wood from the wild west coast beaches below the mountain rivers where this stunning example of New Zealand Pounamu was found.
It can be displayed as a special piece on its stand but for the right person and right occasion, it needs to be worn and touched for its real power to be known.
