Born and raised here I have always felt passionate about New Zealand and our ‘can do’ attitude. I try to infuse a slice of Aotearoa into every piece created.

My career actually began in footwear design but my love of New Zealand timbers soon took over. Using my technical skills and experience from over the years I have developed a range I'm truly proud of. Now based in Auckland’s West Coast, my wife Kitty and I work from our studio creating and marketing our latest products. I feel privileged to do what I do and love representing this land in my work.

The majority of our products are made from kiln dried New Zealand Rimu Veneer and finished with an organic citrus based oil. Because Rimu has such a distinctive grain every one of our products is truly unique. As our timber is Kiln dried there is no issue sending or taking our product overseas, just remember to declare it on your customs form. If in time your product should need refreshing, simply ensure it is dust free and apply a small amount of vegetable oil with a soft cloth, then wipe away any excess
