Featured Artists:

Rolfe Bax & Jackie Tump

These exquisite carvings in bone by Rolfe & Jackie from the deep south are inspired by Celtic and Maori art. They feature stunning detail and natural stains made from local wild plants.

Rolfe and Jackie have been carving together for many years and have earned an enviable reputation as true masters of their craft and unequaled artists in miniature.
They live in a part of the South Island known for its stunning beauty with mountains, lakes and native bushlands dominating the rugged terrain. Is it any wonder that they are inspired by their surroundings to create such stunning designs in bone.

Every piece is carved with astonishing detail and care so is a real art work in miniature. As so much of the spirit of this kind and gentle couple is put into each one of their carvings that they have a very special aura about them.

Jackie and Rolfe are now able to repeat many of these carvings for us on request.

The red and brown pieces are dyed with their own secret recipe of local plants and berries to create a very special and totally unique finish to these exquisite carvings.

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.
