The Bone Art Place is dedicated to the art of hand crafted New Zealand and Pacific region bone carving, jade carving, pearl shell carving and wood carving in its many forms, from the very traditional Maori carving styles to the more contemporary designs for gifts and jewelry.
We are based in Wellington, New Zealand and represent many of New Zealand's most well known and highly skilled artists from around the Pacific region.
Don & Heather Campbell
The founders of The Bone Art Place
Both born in New Zealand, Don is originally from a little place called Tuatapere at the bottom of the South Island and Heather grew up in Auckland.
Like most Kiwi families our blood lines are very mixed with Maori and European ancestry.
As a traditional bone and wood carver himself, Don started The Bone Art Place way back in 1998 to market his carving creations and also the work of several other artist friends to a wider international market.
The concept of genuine high quality wearable art that was handcrafted predominantly by real artists working in their own studios was an instant success and since then The Bone Art place has grown to represent over 35 real artists from New Zealand and around the Pacific region.
