Vivien Mallock`s treatment of bronze, is a shining example of what can be achieved by a combination of an open mind, acute observation and mastery of technique. This amalgam adds the qualities of movement, subtlety of texture and a tactile use of patination, which transforms the medium into something more than mere three-dimensional art. Vivien`s large works in Normandy, Portsmouth and Whitehall are examples of what she can achieve when given the opportunity to fill a large public space, capturing the spirit and poignancy of war and peace.

"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." Sir Roy Strong
I must say I am thrilled with my `Goose Girl` by Lucy Poett. It looks charming in my garden and is greatly admired. I will indeed have a look on your web page and see if I can be tempted again ! ! Kind Regards
