San Diegans fall for NZ designs

Christine Nottingham and Andrea Peach have opened a gallery-cum-store in San Diego to showcase designs by established and emerging artists from their native NZ. Moana Design on Solana Beach features works by glass artists Peter Viesnik, Garry Nash and Hoglund Art Glass, ceramists Gill Gane, Peter Faulkner and Peter Stewart, wood turner Ian Blackwell and jewellers Neal Hanna and Graeme Wylie. “I always thought some of the bright colors of New Zealand fine art went really well in San Diego and the climate,” says Nottingham, who cites Peter Stewart as the top selling designer on their books.
