Carvings & sculpture
My name is Aaron Ellis-Smith. I was born in New Zealand and live in Mangawhai, a coastal town on the east coast of the north island, 1 hour south of Whangarei.
I began carving in 2004 and have always loved timber. I carve most types of wood (and occasionally other mediums), but find swamp kauri the most enjoyable timber to sculpt. Something about it’s character, age (this can range from 2000 to 50,000 years old), feeling and uniqueness to New Zealand inspires me. I also enjoy New Zealand’s native forest, and perhaps part of the reason I love swamp kauri is, although it is a finite resource, it doesn’t require damage to, or the felling of our wonderful native forest.
Carving is something I enjoy doing, being a part of a pieces evolution into final form is something I never get tired of. I hope that those who see my work gain as much pleasure from the pieces, as I received creating them.SKU: n/a

Nicki is the face behind Just Sew. She is a Mum of two, living on a little slice of paradise in rural Auckland, New Zealand.
Just Sew was born out of her passion for fabric and home decor, particularly cushions! She loves them and, not surprisingly, owns an extensive collection.
Working in the textile/interiors industry for many, many years grew my love of fabric, and a desire to work with that love, while raising her family, which started the Just Sew journey.
Along with both indoor and outdoor cushions, their range now includes throws, designer tea towels & aprons, bed linen and cot bedding. They are also very excited to have recently launched a new collection of lifestyle accessories – gorgeous scarves and hair scrunchies with more in the pipeline.
She offers a custom made service, sourcing the right fabric for your special item.
Every piece is manufactured by her in her home studio. Producing high quality, unique, on-trend home decor pieces and accessories is at the forefront of Just Sew.
She is excited to offer you a collection of boutique pieces via our online home decor and lifestyle accessories shop, along with a custom order service – creating the perfect piece for you.

My name is Sarah Green. I am 15 and live in North Canterbury. I have been working on a felting and sewing business called Sew Precious NZ these last couple of years as part of my homeschooling.
I love to needle felt NZ birds (my fantails being particularly popular) baby animals, butterflies, dolls, pendants, nativity sets, angels, 3D pet portraiture, and I sew and crochet with what time I have left. As I’m still a student, I only have time to make small runs of stock but can take on a small number of commissions, particularly in the months leading up to Christmas.
I am passionate about what I make and have sold here in NZ and internationally.SKU: n/a
