I stumbled across Jo Luping designs when I was waiting for a flight at Auckland Airport.
Jo is a New Zealand artist that uses inspiration from nature to create some amazing pieces.
She has a number of different collections, but I especially adore her ceramics.
On that trip I purchased some tiles that I think are stunning and so unique.
Here is what Jo has to say about the tiles:
“Nature provides the inspiration for my design. Drawing is how I interpret and transform the environment into works of art. I draw from the land to create objects from clay.”
Ceramic tiles are one of the earliest forms of art. Each piece of ceramic art tells a story and is made with the intention of highlighting an environmental issue. Highlighting the surrounding natural beauty gives us a greater appreciation of our responsibilities as guardians of the land. [Jo Luping]
