Johnathan Percy is Christchurch born and breed but is now based in the Waikato. He strives to create high quality contemporary carvings from a range of different materials using the skills he learnt while studying for his Diploma in Jade and Hard Stone Carving at Tai Poutini Polytechnic.
His influences and interests in stone stem from long standing use of stone by mankind and the role this technology has played in our evolution throughout the ages. Nature is also a heavily influential contributor to his work, especially New Zealand’s rich bird life. J
