Art in the Garden – May to October 2019

Two examples of my recent pieces of sculpture will be on show at the ‘Art in the Garden’ exhibition this summer in the Sir Harold Hillier Garden in Hampshire, starting on 11th May 2019 and continuing until October.

I have previously had my ceramics shown in this lovely garden and it gave me great pleasure.

The pieces I will be exhibiting are inspired by the seedpods of Japanese Anemones, which I find more fascinating than the actual flowers. The seedpods start off quite firm with a nice pattern. They then open up, expand, and blow away.

To make the sculptures, I first carved the shape by hand in plaster and then made a mould from that shape, before casting clay into the plaster mould. One of the pieces is soda-wood fired and the other is fired in the gas kiln in my Sheffield studio.

Both pieces are designed to be placed outdoors and add interest to a garden environment.
