The Upper Moutere has become a destination for locals and visitors to the Nelson region with its wealth of artists and artisan producers. Throughout the last fourteen years Michael MacMillan and partner Jackie Crow have created their own boutique destination, Sculpture & Country Homeware, a combination of two gallery spaces showcasing Michael’s exquisite sculpture along with items made from traditional French oak barrels, photography, painting, jewellery and country homewares.
