Ian Thorne owns and operates The Bone Studio & Gallery.

Carving for over 15 years, Ian acquires materials when and where he can. He is mainly interested in whale teeth and bone which he has found while beachcombing.

Ian creates jewellery, carvings, Maori instruments and sculptures, all of which you can buy.

If you want to get involved and learn more about bone carving, Ian also offers bone carving classes. Both locals and tourists can come along to the bone studio and learn how to hand carve their own high quality bone carving.
