Carver

Roger Chapman

Roger Chapman at work Hokitika Craft GalleryRoger has lived on the Coast for 23 years. He is a self-taught carver working in bone, stone, and wood.

“I make pendants and free-standing sculptures from bone and jade. From wood I make walking sticks. All of my carvings are ‘one offs’. I also dabble at times with a bit of scrimshaw.”
