jo luping design

Jo Luping studied printmaking and photography at the Otago Fine Art School, then film making and design at Wellington’s Victoria University. She established her studio in 1996 and became renowned for her ceramics which capture New Zealand’s coastal landforms and indigenous flora and fauna. She works in a variety of mediums including jewellery, ceramics, glass, printmaking, textiles, photography and film. “I use design as a platform to tell a story. The story will raise awareness about an environmental issue and highlight nature’s beauty. Each piece made is a conservation conversation. I am inspired by the Japanese aesthetic wabi-sabi. The characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, simple elegance, intimacy, modesty and suggest a natural process.”

Tx Gillian. After my 8th purchase of these, hope this is the last but that's what I said last time. People see mine and want me to get them one too.

A million thank you’s Patricia for your friendly helpful approach to sort such an amazing buy! You even went beyond to arrange an overnight ‘fragile’ delivery to ensure items arrived timely – in which they did. Packaging was just beautiful and I’m most happy! Thank you again and I will be back for more additions to our purchase. Will encourage many.
