Swamp kauri and resin inlay work

Neville has been woodturning for over 10 years and we work as a team, with Neville turning the wood and Emma producing designs for the inlay. Using mainly swamp kauri, our aim is to bring out the natural beauty of the wood, embellishing some timber with resin inlay work, and leaving others to display their natural grain or colour, enhanced by form.

Emma draws on her love on design, preferring natural objects for the inlay work such as leaves and ferns, and items collected from the seashore, including paua.

Our studio on SH 10 is open to the public from September until July. During the winter, please ring to arrange a time to visi.

Mixed Media Painting Wood Work

Abstract Painter/Wood Worker

I live and create by the sea. I have gathered recycled timber which I craft into artisan furniture. The most beautiful timbers are reserved for tactile sculptural objects, like small stones and surfboards.

It is a privilege to work with swamp kauri, puriri, taraire, rewarewa, totara and pohutukawa of our area. The pieces are designed to give pleasure to the eye, the hand and the mind.

While I enjoy creating works with harmony and movement I also like to challenge the viewer. My paintings reflect our coastal environment and the people around me. I Iook forward to sharing them.
