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.
We enjoy creating striking & bold designs for visual impact as well as more subtle, elegant art that nestles into gardens & landscapes around NZ.
Grounded Art has provided such an enjoyable platform for us to be creative & work together, we are truly passionate about what we create. We get such a buzz seeing our work heading off into homes & gardens all over NZ & overseas. Grounded Art NZ Garden Art & Sculpture – an adventure that has really ‘grounded us’ as a family & continues to enhance & inspire others from the ground up!”
