Mike Brown has been a hobby bone carver since 1980. He has developed his own style and created unique designs around such themes as community, connection, wellbeing, inner qualities and wholeness: “It is the unseen things that make us great.”
Many of Mike’s works are worn, some are display pieces and others wall hangings.
Mike’s work is a mix of abstract design and realism and is often chosen for the superior quality of its finish.
Mike is a thoughtful and reflective artist with a particular interest in people, their connections, relationships and spiritual journeys. Belonging is key: “You are part of something bigger than yourself. You are never alone.”
Mike initiated the annual Mokau Bone Carving Easter workshops, hosts the Mokau Bone Carving Facebook page and runs a bone carving club out of his studio.
