Another classic Chan Andreassend design still going strong after 7 years. Developed from the inside of the ceramic tapa canoe. Recently used in a Samoan Resort, last year the Queenstown Hilton Spa, as well as numerous other projects including courtyards and homes. The most popular colours are white and bone crackle glazes with the red and lime equally stunning.

This is where Art means Business.
Of course a finale is never enough with just wishful thinking.
Finally every passion, insecurity, idea, hope, aspiration, thought, angst and energy comes together in something that is bigger than the sum of the parts.
Art as a metaphor for life, sports, politics, business and society. Maybe
Not for me
The never quite made it consultants with glossed over credentials .
Yet another Guru flaunting yet another secrets to success seminar.
Intellectualised prattle of Art Critics basking in the glow of their lofty review.
Tall Poppy Syndrome validating Greed is Good or outright theft.
Public Servants Entitlements forgetting where the money came from.
Councils with political agendas over-riding common sense.
Red Tape strangulating entrepreneurs & productivity
Loopholes that allowed the Leaky Home & Finance Industry fiasco.
A society which ignores the vulnerable, the whistle blowers,
and national pride based on the sporting field.
Just play me an Anthem and unfurl a flag
