Martyn Hodder

I live in Stratford, Taranaki with my wife Michelle. I am an ex-builder of 35 years, partially disabled from a serious spinal injury. I now work as an Sculptor/Artist/Designer. I design and make rimu, kauri, kwila, jarrah, macrocarpa and other timber sculptures and unique and interesting furniture from both new and very old re-cycled timber, plus renewable timber sources - the objective is to be unique and make simple and unique timeless pieces using different timbers, corten steel, corrugated iron, copper and stone, highlighting the natural colour and beauty in the materials used.
