Evolution of the Matau — Fish Hook

by


SOLD

This series reflects the progression and development of the fishhook from the older functional traditional item to a contemporary ornamental wearable art piece. The first three are made from traditional materials, whereas the last two utilize the cattle bone popular in contemporary usage and modern staining techniques.

(1967- )

Kerry has been carving for twenty-two years in many materials and is possibly the leading artist working in bone. Although he attended a diploma course in Māori design at Waiariki Polytechnic in Rotorua and learned from Hepi Maxwell, Rex Christianson and other artists working in the same materials, his style of carving and two-tone staining process are uniquely his own.
