Superb Work from a Master Carver

Jeff Bryan is a qualified master carver able to bring his talents to a multitude of applications. 

Equally comfortable in working with both traditional and contemporary designs, Jeff often draws influence from both Maori and Celtic techniques and imagery. 

With heritage from both sides, Jeff carves fusion pieces as unique as the man himself. In addition to the works found in the Hovding Gallery, Jeff dedicates a considerable share of his time to commission pieces.

Whatever your needs may be, Jeff’s talent is sure to create a treasured gift, taonga or remembrance piece. 

All of his works are hand carved and he uses a technique called wood tattoo where he uses an 4 inch nail & mallet to emboss the wood before he paints then sands.

Previous commission pieces include birthday celebrations, farm signs, plaques, and weaponry all personalised.

His main source of media is River Totara and recycled Totara strainers and posts from sheep stations by the coast. The presence of weathering, moss and wire gate dog hardware bring originality to these fantastic works.

Jeff joined the Hovding Gallery and New Zealand Natural Clothing team in 2012 after he was commissioned to create the unique multi-directional Totara sign which sits proudly outside our Norsewood South site.

Visit Jeff at the entrance of Home & Interiors in Wairarapa on the 9 & 10 November
