Jays experience dates back to his mid 20s. He attended a “Summer Do” at the quarry to be guided by prominent N.Z bone carver Len Kay, he is largely self taught. Jay works largely on commission and the carvings on display have with to exception gone to new homes. He prefers to speak directly with the client and if possible discuss design and purpose. He guarantees such carvings will not be repeated.
