Terry & Ruth Urban

Incredible contemporary artistry in Jade, Serpentine & Bowenite

Many of these special carvings are unique custom or limited edition pieces that will not be repeated on our site and therefore do not appear in our stock catalogue. Some of the "designs" may be repeated but the colour, pattern and texture of the special jades from which each is carved makes most pieces very unique.

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.

This particular stone is almost black when flat on a dark surface but as soon as the light shows through it the hidden colour and swirling patterns of dark flecks suddenly leap out at you. Terry & Ruth have carved it perfectly and often cut thin to show off its hidden beauty.

About The Artists - Terry & Ruth Urban

Deceptively simple yet elegant carvings that show off the hidden beauty within the stone.

American born Terry and Kiwi Ruth live in Nelson at the top of New Zealand's South Island, the home.
Terry has carved wood and bone for many years but switched to jade 2 years ago. His designs are contemporary but often reflect his sense of humour with their quirky, fun style. Ruth had helped Terry with the finishing work on his pieces and only started working stone herself recently. Ruth loves the outdoors, especially the beach and native bush so her pieces reflect this love of nature.
These two amazing artists have a real passion for their work and love nothing more than talking to people about their stones which is why you will still see them at the Nelson markets every Saturday morning.



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