Featured Artist:

Dean Hetherington

Dean is an absolute master in jade with styles ranging from very traditional to contemporary.
This is unique and very rare art in jade with an aura of power and a style instantly recognizable world wide.

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.

About The Artist - Dean Hetherington

Dean is a master of traditional techniques in New Zealand Pounamu (Jade).
Dean has been carving from a very young age and has a passion for the sacred stone and the traditional carving methods. His style is totally unique blending his traditional heritage and his vision of the land and nature into stunning sculptural pieces. Dean has an extraordinary affinity with the Pounamu and a way of drawing out what is hidden inside unlike any other artist.

Dean is passionate and somewhat eccentric artist. His art and his music are his life but living on the rugged west coast of the South Island Deans work comes on the market very rarely and is highly sought after by collectors around the world.



Presentation Boxes (Wakahuia)
Available in several styles and sizes are the perfect finishing touch for these carvings

These can be found in our Wood & Wood Carvings section HERE
