Hepi Maxwell

Hepi is one of most famous Maori master jade and bone carvers in New Zealand and has a strong following world wide.
His work is often traditional yet has a very distinct flair and style which is instantly recognizable.
Hepi has a passion for the sacred Pounamu and has a way of seeing the flowing forms and curls hidden deep within the stone so his works reflect what he sees and feel in each piece.

Most of Hepi's carvings are very sculptural in form with delicate overlapping spirals yet also a sense of strength and power. He is best known for his spectacular sculptures which blend traditional and contemporary styling with the beauty of true Pounamu.

Hepi has had his work published in many books and displayed in galleries and museums all over the world

Many of these special pieces are custom designs that will not be repeated on our site and therefore do not appear in our main catalogue. While some of the basic "design elements" may be repeated, the colour, pattern and texture of the special jades from which each is carved makes most of these pieces very unique.

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

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 from just US$6.95 for up to 5 pendants.
All pricing is in US$.

As these carvings can never be replaced if lost in transit, we highly recommend choosing one of the courier delivery option.
