The Sculpture Garden

The garden holds an intimate collection of sculpture made using a variety of media. I have selected   artists whose work moves me, because I love their work and I want to bring it to attention.

Why did I do it?

Over the years I’ve worked with many sculpture gardens, and have friends who have sculpture gardens, but more recently it’s something that I’ve really felt that I wanted to create myself. There are many artists whose work I have admired for some time and I couldn’t think of anything better than bringing their work together in one place.

My aim is to curate an intimate collection of the works of people who I consider to be some of the best sculptors from around the UK. Some are better known than others but all of them deserve to be in the garden, every individual piece has a story, and it is a privilege to put their work here in my garden as part of a wider collection.

It was very important that it shouldn’t be a formal sculpture garden because for me they sometimes make work seem inaccessible. I feel that people should be comfortable living alongside fabulous things that become part of the fabric of their lives. So my garden is a real garden, with a vegetable patch and the odd child’s toy about the place, because it’s a space that’s lived in and the sculpture should be part of that.

I hope that when people see the work here they will be inspired to imagine the effect it could have on their own garden.

Buying, Delivery & Installation

Works are for sale or can be commissioned. Timescales will vary, depending upon each individual piece, and can range from three weeks to three months, but would always be agreed at the point of commissioning.  We are very happy for pieces to be collected, but we also offer a full delivery and installation service.  Prices for this service vary depending upon the piece and the location.
