tapiwa

Tapiwa is a skilled artist who works exclusively in Ebony, an exceptionally hard wood that is the most expensive wood in the world.

Ebony has a white sap wood and a black heart wood. As the tree grows the centre of the tree turns black and exceptionally hard. Carving Ebony is a time consuming task that requires great patience and skill.

Pieces carved from the heart wood are naturally black, with rare inclusions of white streaks. The selection of the correct heart wood leads to beautiful carvings.
