New Zealand Mosaic Art

In September 2010 and February 2011 Christchurch experienced two major earthquakes that reshaped the city, with many lives lost and others changed forever. Sometimes broken isn’t meant to be fixed – instead we can only piece together the fragments to create something new and hopefully just as beautiful.

The lovely Flora and Otto – born (literally) from the rubble of the quakes. Within their thousands of pieces of meticulously cut china lie many treasured memories – tea sets from grandparents, dinner sets from overseas adventures, commemorative cups and saucers. These stories that were too precious to throw away were instead given a new life by the talented Crack’d for Christchurch team.

Kindly on loan to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Flora and Otto are located between the Daffodil Woodland and Heritage Rose Garden.
