Introducing Brendon, Jane & Grounded Art NZ
Brendon & Jane are passionate kiwi gardeners with a creative eye & flair for all-things-metal – both born & bred in Nelson, NZ.
Brendon – a well-seasoned Sheet Metal Engineer, specialising in architectural stainless steel, general engineering & welding & more recently “grounded art” pieces – where he is combining his love for the outdoors with his talents in the workshop.
Jane – Resource Management Planner, who is never far away from her garden – has a love for design, photography & creating wonderful sculpture & art for NZ gardens.
“We love Metal – Corten is our absolute favourite material to work with – the rust takes on a life & dimension all of its own – each sculpture slightly different from the last – Corten steel is a heavy duty, corrosion resistant, weathering steel that will not break down like regular steel – creating long-lasting art & interest in the garden.
The team at Grounded Art NZ enjoy creating high quality, original art with striking & bold designs for visual impact as well as more subtle, elegant designs that nestle into gardens & landscapes around NZ. All their artwork is designed and crafted by the two of them, using sustainable NZ materials.
Grounded Art NZ has provided such an enjoyable platform to be creative & work together, Brendon and Jane are truly passionate about what they create. They get such a buzz seeing works heading off into homes & gardens all over NZ & overseas.
Grounded Art NZ Garden Art & Sculpture – an adventure that has really ‘grounded them’ as a family & continues to enhance & inspire others from the ground up!”
