Sculpture: 'Bouquet (Giant Flower, Carrot, Butterfly, Beetle, Snail conceptual Art)' by Lorna Green
"Bouquet" was commissioned by Windmill Hill Primary School in Runcorn, Cheshire to be part of a a project with raised herb beds. The whole school took part in workshops for the idea which have been incorporated in the final work. This was a commission and as such is not available; however if it gives you an idea you would like to discuss with lorna green...contact her below.
This was a delightful project with the enthusiam of the whole school. I suggested several ideas from all their drawings, and the school selected the one they preferred and were very excited when it was installed.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

This lovely sculpture has been arrived without any problem. Now it is sitting in my house. We will move it to our new place for public showcase when the whole decoration has finished. I will keep you update with our project soon. Thanks for your big help, anyway. We are still evaluating the whole space to see if we need to purchase one or two Nikki Taylor`s sculptures as well.
