Mike Brown designs and creates superb contemporary bone carvings. His outstanding work is created largely with hand tools and each piece holds significance for its owner. Mike’s unique designs explore such themes as community, wellbeing (hauora), character and wholeness. Mike is a thoughtful, reflective artist with a particular interest in people, relationships and spiritual journeys. ‘Belonging is key’, he says. ‘You are part of something bigger than yourself. You are never alone.’ Mike heads up the annual Firstgas Mokau Bone Carving Symposiums, hosts the Mokau Bone Carving facebook page and runs a bonecarving club out of his studio at Tongaporutu. Examples of Mike’s stunning work can be viewed on Instagram at bonecarver007.
