Brendon & Jane Harley
Brendon & Jane are passionate kiwi gardeners with a creative eye & flair for all-things-metal - both born & bred in Nelson, NZ - their shared enthusiasm for art & landscaping and creating metal art for their own garden quickly evolved into Grounded Art NZ - where you will find them designing and creating high quality & original art and sculpture for homes & gardens throughout 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 & garden 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 and Corten is also gorgeous indoors.
We enjoy creating high quality, original artwork - with striking & bold contemporary designs to make a statement as well as more subtle, elegant & rustic designs that nestle into NZ gardens & landscapes. All our artwork is designed and crafted by the two of us, using sustainable NZ materials.
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 & we even have plenty of visitors take work with them overseas!
Grounded Art NZ Garden Art & Sculpture – an adventure that has really ‘grounded' us as a family & continues to enhance the landscape & inspire people from the 'ground' up!
