Creating beautiful things from wood and wax
Wairua Wood and Wax
We love to create turned wood,
wax luminaries, candles, beeswax wraps,
and honey for you to enjoy.
At Wairua Wood and Wax we create individually hand crafted products in wood and wax for you to enjoy. They all make beautiful gifts for yourself or others. Sarah creates luminaries, candles and other wax products all made from pure beeswax from our own hives. Simon creates a range of mainly turned wood items, predominantly using wood from native trees which have fallen down, from demolition timber or from swamp kauri, which has been buried for thousands of years. While we work individually, at times we enjoy collaborating.
Beeswax Luminaries are wax globes or lanterns. They are beautiful by day and stunning by night and create a honey-like fragrance. Browse through our gallery. Each piece is handmade and unique.
Simon loves designing and creating turned wood pieces that are beautiful as well as functional. He loves to showcase the beauty of New Zealand’s native timbers.
kawakawa balms (rongoa)
Kawakawa balm is a traditional Maori Rongoa (medicine) used for hundreds of years to cure eczema and a whole range of skin conditions.
