Ian Blackwell is a genius builder...of little things! "hand-built" is his motto. "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." All his 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. All items are proudly New Zealand made. "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."
