Aeon Giftware

Founder Mike Carlton has always been passionate about Māori art and design - he is of Ngāti Whakaue descent, inheriting his mother’s artistic talent. The Aeon story begins in 1990, where the small township of Katikati was struggling, and Mike, who was volunteering, wanted to depict the unique history of the area through (now famous) murals that would draw in new visitors. His role included fundraising, which he did by making screen-printed Kauri coasters and selling them through local outlets. So, in a classic kiwi way, the journey began in a garage! When new tech was introduced in 1993, in the form of NZ’s first laser engraver, this enabled Mike to produce new forms of multi layered carving, all in intricate detail.  Since 1995, the team have been based in their Rotorua workshop, where they now operate three engravers - continuing to create giftware to be treasured, combining technology with artistic flair and cultural influence, creating truly meaningful pieces.
