Artist – Jo Luping
Jo Luping Design started as many small cottage businesses start, in the garage. Jo spent time after art school travelling through Europe, coming upon Gaudi’s Parc Guell. And so began an obsession with glazes and the rich deep colours of this medium. She returned to New Zealand and began in 1994 to develop her first series of ceramic art tiles.
Jo has now surrounded herself with a team with a passion for beautiful and well crafted objects of art. Jo Luping Design produces art pieces such as ceramics, jewellery and prints. Her pieces are dramatic and intelligent and reflect the natural environment that we live in. Inspiration is drawn from the land and sea of New Zealand.
