Morgan Watson

 
Morgan Watson is an extraordinary Maori artist from the Taranaki district in New Zealand.  He has a very unique and classical style which reflects his traditional heritage working and living in rural Taranaki. His style ranges from the very finely finished and formal carvings to his favourites, which are the large, substantial traditional pieces which carry a raw, almost ancient, feel to them.  While he is a master of modern polishing techniques, he is also a master of the old ways and tools, which combine to show the mark of the artist in the work.   

Morgan is one of New Zealand’s best known and most skilled carvers with an unmistakable style that speaks to his deep respect for his craft, his culture and his tribe.   Not only is he well known in the community for his skill but he is also highly respected as a leader and strong advocate for the preservation of ancient crafts.  His designs often reflect what he believes is hidden inside a particular piece of Pounamu or what it tells him he should see.  

Morgan is heavily involved in promoting Maori culture and he continues to exhibit in the top Maori craft fairs around the country. He is a true artisan and enjoys carving pieces that are interesting and inspiring to him.
