We are always interested to hear from new potential suppliers of driftwood from the more ‘exotic’ locations around the world to help us complement the current range of driftwood sculptures we supply.
Most of our driftwood supplies are currently sourced from the South West Pacific area and mainly collected from beaches on New Zealand’s south island. We are however interested in hearing from other potential suppliers of driftwood from other locations (excluding Europe). We are not interested in rainforest or freshwater/lake driftwood but only in exotic hard woods that have been washed ashore by tides or storm. Origin locations that would interest us the most would be the coast lines of North and South America, Canada, Africa, the Far East, Australasia and island or mainland locations in the Indian or Pacific Ocean regions.
We are interested to hear from those who can demonstrate an ability to supply good quality driftwood of all sizes in fairly large volumes or from those who have stumbled upon a particularly special or large driftwood piece that may have a value as a centre piece driftwood sculpture for either indoor or outdoor display.
Please contact us in the first instance using the enquiry form on this web site.
Driftwood from New Zealand and the south west pacific area only becomes available during the wet and wild months between November and January. Huge storms and Hurricanes will churn the sea beds and deposit the driftwood ashore from which we make our selection for our driftwood sculpture collection. Outside of these months there is very little driftwood to be found.
Driftwood is essentially wood that has been washed onto a shore or beach of a sea or river by the action of winds, tides, waves or man. It is a form of marine debris. The combined actions of the elements over sometimes hundreds of years creates individually unique driftwood sculptures with no one piece being the same as another.
