“The happiest garden on earth”

“The happiest Garden on earth” is the home of New Zealand artist Josie Martin.Image

My mom, sister, Forrest and I visited the sculpture and mosaic garden while in Akaroa. Martin has been working on her home and garden for fourteen years.

The garden was so much fun to explore, touch, sit on and photograph!

Martin designs and works on the forms of the sculptures which are built with reinforcing steel and concrete. She then colors and mosaics the works.

Wouldn’t you agree they are whimsical, flamboyant, elegant and eccentric?
