NEW ARRIVAL

PILATUS - A gorgeous hook, or matau, carved from glorious New Zealand Flower Jade.

This matau pendant was carved for us by Ric Moor. Ric's work is new to our collection and we're delighted to have it. He has been carving jade for many years and has passed on his skills to a lot of young carvers - many who have gone on to develop considerable skill in this old art.

Maybe the nicest matau we have seen - this one has it all. It is beautifully designed and carved and the jade is sensational. Every now and again we have art that we find it hard to let go - this is one of these rare pieces.

PILATUS will be a pendant that will be worn and treasured for a life.

Ric Moor carved this for us - he has a really fine touch and a marvellous ability to carve pieces that bring out the best in the stone that he is working with. He has finished it with in a soft polish that glows and is gorgeous to handle.

I discussed this finish with Ric and his view is that he prefers this finish to the higher polish because, with time and wear, the pendant will adapt and change with the owners lifestyle and become a 'better' piece. PILATUS is close to perfect so if it improves it will be incredible.

Watch the brief video we have made of it slowly revolving. It will reveal all the angles and subtle variations in colour, and maybe help you imagine how this piece will make you feel when you slip it over your head.

The Hook - Matau:  the wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.
