Jones cre­ate ex­quis­ite sculp­tures in land­scapes all over the world, us­ing ma­te­ri­als such as snow, ice, rocks and leaves. Af­ter be­ing pho­tographed, they are left to be ab­sorbed by na­ture. Martin says: “Mov­ing to Wanaka 10 years ago trans­formed our lives. We travel widely, ex­hibit­ing and pub­lish­ing our work, but Wanaka’s moun­tains and lakes and na­ture’s sea­sonal trans­for­ma­tions are a con­stant in­spi­ra­tion.”

The re­sult of their art ap­pears serene and beau­ti­ful but it comes with a mes­sage about the en­vi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges of our time. Vis­i­tors are wel­come to view/pur­chase Martin and Philippa’s fine-art prints and sculp­tures as well as cards and their book Earth to Earth at their stu­dio/gallery high on Mt Iron on the out­skirts of Wanaka. 1 Har­rier Lane,
