Award winning woodturners of Mapua

Ann and Bob are long established professionals whose home studio at the top of Mapua Drive looks across the Waimea estuary to Richmond and Nelson. Visit them to see the range of turned wood on offer. Some are of interest because of the 30,000 year old age of the wood. Others because limb compression has produced detailed patterns and stresses. All have been turned with an eye to form and professional finish.

You may have seen their works on display in the Suter.  Perhaps you've read their books and want to see and touch the bowls. They welcome people with a love of wood, and how it can become an art object that displays part of the growth history of a tree. There are other artists in the Mapua area. Make a day of it, and enjoy lunch in Mapua.

The location is given on the Contact-us page. On other pages are displayed examples of work. For more information please email

They are experienced in packing and sending goods overseas. So if you are on tour, you can carry on tour, knowing that a well protected  purchase has been rapidly and carefully sent to the address you want.
