Description
Clive Fugill, Master Carver at the NZ Māori Arts & Crafts Institute, tells the mythical, traditional and modern stories of the making and use of carving tools, including the adze (toki) and the chisel (whao) with detailed drawings and photographs. The first part of the book explores legendary adzes and craftsmen, while the second part analyzes the location and exploitation of the principal stone resources (including basalt, obsidian and pounamu). The latter parts outline the manufacture, classification and use of the adze and the chisel, as well as the Māori drill and other tools. There are more than 80 detailed drawings and colour photographs.
