This beautiful whale tail pendant from One Ocean Designs uses a fascinating wood stabilisation process to add colour and highlight the natural patination. Wood stabilisation is the process of replacing any air in the capillaries of the wood with a hardening agent. The hardening agent can contain colours, which gives each piece unique results.
This made to order hand-carved abstract fantail sculpture from Bearwood Workshop is hand crafted from locally sourced fallen mountain beech timber that has been seasoned for three years in the workshop prior to carving. Each wooden bird is lovingly carved from a custom selected bit timber to provide its own unique grain pattern and character and perches elegantly on its own little perch.
Is it a coat rack, hat stand, or wall art? Yes! The Forest HangR from Darren Scott Design is a stunning wall mounted coat piece made of up to nine New Zealand native timbers. Each HangR is an individual and no two will be the same.
Gracing the cover of our Christmas Catalogue this year with their elegant form, these beautiful birds by Bearwood Workshop are handcarved in Wanaka from Tasmanian Blackwood or Mountain Beech. Inspired by the korimako or New Zealand bellbird, each one is unique, with its own grain pattern and character. We think these make a stunning gift (though you may find you want to keep them for yourself).

Jewellery maker Anna Quartly of Pigeon Thomas says that the inspiration for her work comes from living off-grid and self sufficiently. With the beautiful natural vista of Kahurangi National Park visible from her Golden Bay/Mohua home, she finds she is able to stay focused on what is important. She loves to create pieces that are special – one of a kind – working with natural materials that are simple, pure, and renewable.
We’re in love with this stunning mid-century style planter from Waikato maker Furnichur, new to Felt. Hand made from native New Zealand rimu and exotic sapelle mahogany for contrast, the Oma planter also features brass fixings and a clever spacer effect which makes the legs appear to float apart from the body.
