About the Koru range.
The Koru or spiral is recognised in the culture of the New Zealand Maori, and also many others,
as a symbol of life and growth. It represents renewal and hope and is
the stylistic depiction of the unfurling of a Fern Frond. All the pieces
in this range make great Wedding and Birthday gifts, as the symbolism
is particularly appropriate.
All our work comes with felt dots on the bottom, to protect your furniture,
a swing tag describing the stone and its origins, and where indicated, comes
in custom made gift boxes.

KORU CD ENDS
16cm x 13cm x 10cm ( the pair) $69
Great gifts for music lovers, these were created as CD ends,
that is they are the same height as a CD and will fit
into a space designed for storing CDs.
The natural weight of the stone however makes them perfect book
ends too. (I have also seen them used as door stops!)
The pair are carved on both sides and so
can be used at either end of a shelf, or individually.
* available gift boxed.
KORU BOOK ENDS
23cm x 18cm x 10cm (the pair) $135
These are fantastic bookends as the natural weight of the stone is able
to support both small and large format books. Their proportions also make
them very nice sculptural pieces. Because they are carved on both sides
they can be used at either end of a shelf or individually.
* available gift boxed
KORU CANDLE HOLDER
19cm x 19cm x 10cm $82
This lovely simple shape was our first ever design. It has been carved
on both sides and the flat indentation on the top makes it suitable
for supporting most standard candle sizes, or if you prefer we can
make you one without the candle hole as a purely sculptural piece.
20cm x 18cm x 10cm $180
These beautiful clocks have been inlaid with Paua shell (New Zealand
Abalone) unique in the world for its deep colours and lustre.
It comes with a Quartz movement that has a 12 month warranty and black
precision lacquered hands, including a second hand.
12cm x 11cm x 5cm $29
These are one of our smaller pieces, they make great Valentines gifts
or just something nice for a special friend. the combination of the
heart, the symbol of love and the Koru the symbol of hope and renewal
make them very special. The Koru heart comes gift boxed, and includes
tea light candle.
19cm x 10cm x 5cm (approx) $45
As with all these pieces the little Fishies are all made by hand,
so each face is individual, giving each fish a character
of its own.
The eyes are inlaid with Paua shell (New Zealand Abalone). They make
great decoration in the bathroom, or outside by a water feature, the natural Oamaru
stone is suitable for all weather conditions including wet and humid.
Little Fishies are popular housewarming gifts.
PIKO CANDLE HOLDER
Large 30cm x 20cm x 10cm $135
The proportions of the Piko candle holder are perfect, being one of
our taller pieces it makes a great centre piece for a table, or a
purely sculptural piece to add some art to the garden, its candle
hole is big enough to fit most standard candles or we can make it
without the candle hole at your request.
PIKO CANDLE HOLDER
Small 19cm x 10cm x 7cm $45
The small Piko is designed to fit taper candles and they look fantastic
as a pair at either end of a mantle piece, or are small enough to
look great creating some mood lighting beside the bath tub, maybe
create a theme by pairing one up with a Little Fishy.
