We enjoy pieces of sculpture around the garden, some we buy, some are pieces of interesting “found objects” from the beach or countryside, but more special are the ones we receive as presents and the most special of all are those created by the person giving them as presents.
This piece was made by our daughter, Jo, from copper sheet and copper piping, and inspired by the work of a fellow student. The piece is based on the leaves of the Stagshorn Fern. It always looks colourful with the colours changing as the day moves on and as the weather changes.
We “planted” the sculpture alongside a bronze leaved Phormium, to both compliment and enhance the sculpture and the plant.
Recently we explored the nature reserve, Brandon Marshes, run by the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, and as the light began to drop the sun shone through the old leaves of a coppiced oak and the effect it presented was so similar to our sculpture. the colour, texture and shape. Amazing coincidence.
