About Us

Our Outdoor Art Business actually started in the first New Zealand during lockdown back in 2020.

We’re a local New Zealand family based business borns in NZ with the aim of helping others live better with beautiful art. 

We have a fantastic range of products on offer to suit both inside and outside. Our product list is growing every month so be sure to sign up for updates and news at the bottom of this site. When you buy from us you support a local, small business.

We make everything in Warkworth at our local factory so that you can save. We have unique designs making us your first choice for something different. 

We make everything from quality commercial grade ACM. Some of our competitors use 3mm ACM or thin walled aluminum. We only use top grade 4mm with a 3mm skin giving us the advantage of a 5 year warranty, not just 12 months. See our What is ACM page for more details.

Our Background

Based on over 30 years of I.T. and electronics experience and over 30 years of sales, we decided to build a full scale commercial CNC machine. It was a converted material cutting CNC, and I have been expanding it ever since.

It started out with cable ties, a battery dewalt router and bread boards. It's now a fully scaled water cooled spindle with commercial 32bit controller.

Our first project was to create 12mm H3.2 ply fence panels as I was in the trellis business. It didn't take long to understand ply was not a very durable product to work with. I went though a few products until I came across ACM. It was harder to cut and work with the results were fantastic. Stong, flat and lightweight products that didn't rust. The problem was it was white. I experimented with painting the ACM, but found the finish to be average. I wanted a quality long lasting finish that can be outside in direct sunlight and weather.

After a lot of research I found a quality New Zealand distributor of coloured ACM. After testing by scrubbing, water blasting and leaving out in direct sunlight over summer with no fade I found the ACM required.

Th colors are limited as we only source commercial graded colors that are used in the building industry. Getting the colours over the last 12 months has been a challenge, so we decided to build our own warehouse and bulk buy in the sheets. This insured we have a supply and saved on cost with bulk buying.
