Lava Glass Tulips

An Arty Oasis

Every sculpture was created in our studio, and some of the larger pieces like the rainbow, which is 4m long by 2.5m high, and the Lava Tree, which is 2.7m tall, took months to complete. The garden also includes a gentle waterfall cascading over layers of coloured shell-like platters, glass flowers and some of NZ's largest pieces of handblown glass. One of our visitiors' favourites are the large tulips. They are huge, vibrant and have a immense visual impact. All sculptures sit amongst native plantings, mature trees and natural landscaping.

"Garden of Significance"

In 2018 our sculpture garden was awarded the 'garden of significance' status by the National New Zealand Garden Trust. Like a traditional garden, our sculpture garden is always changing. Every year we add a new sculpture. The latest addition to our garden is our 'Bubble Tree'.
