Sculpture in the Garden

_F147690A Sculpture will transform any Garden, huge or pocket-sized, elaborate or austere. It will need to be made of beautiful, quality materials that have a radiance complimentary to your gorgeous plants. A piece needs to be frost-proof and easily cleaned. No material is as durable or as low maintenance as high-fired Clay.

Tawe Arts Week is the perfect time to come a visit the garden. You will be welcome to take a free cup of tea or coffee and sit out and relax while you take it all in. There is also displays of smaller sculpture in the house. In the Studio there will be a Join-In Sculpture on the go so you can add your bit. Arts Week is the time each year when I am available to talk through your ideas and projects and I love it.

I make simple , movable plinths with old bricks and attractive stone paving tiles. Dig a hole and put in some bricks to make a foundation if the Sculpture is tall or very heavy, then build a hollow plinth with a small doorway that can double as a safe, cosy home for wild-life. If security is an issue or the piece is tall and vulnerable to high winds sink a stake into the ground, build the plinth around this and have the stake go into the Sculpture- many of my Sculptures are hollow and you can set them securely with cement if needs be.IMG_20190504_175930057My garden is 8 years old and is now really coming into it’s own.

Sculptures will define each area of your garden. This patio at the end of the garden is a calm, reflective place with dappled shade in the summer and warm sun in spring and autumn. In the winter the sculpture stands out and is eye catching from the house.
