IAN BLACKWELL

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. My career actually began in footwear design but my love of New Zealand timbers soon took over. 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. 


All Ian Blackwell's wooden products are lovingly created and distributed by his talented team in Riverton at the bottom of the South Island. Cut using the latest laser technology every product is then assembled and finished by hand. You can be sure that every one of Ian's pieces has been put together with great care, attention to detail and the Pride of the South!
