Anthony Jenner spent most of his life in Tauranga and now
resides in Rotorua. He started carving pounamu around 2000 and was
taught by fellow greenstone carver Peter Akker whom he currently
works with. Anthony’s work is based on traditional designs, but
often includes contemporary elements.
Peter Akker has been trained by well-known carver Hepi Maxwell
and is building his reputation as one of the finest lashers in
Aotearoa NZ. Much of Peter’s work is highly regarded and has been
purchased by people such as the cast and crew of Lord of the Rings at
the completion of their work in Wellington.
