Rosie Sturgis has been for more than two decades sculpting on bronze and other materials, and exhibited her work both locally and overseas. For quite some time her focus has been on wildlife sculptures in bronze, some of which have gained critical acclaim.

They first make balls of especially elephant dung and then roll it to suitable spot then bury it.
I have used real African grass in the ball of dung.

"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."

The sculptures (Fiddleheads Male and Female) arrived this morning and look fantastic. If you could pass on my thanks to the artist (Oliver Strong), I would be most grateful. Many thanks for your assistance,
