THE USE OF SCULPTURE IN GARDENS

Sculpture is often used as a focal point in a garden but it can be equally used to lead you to other parts of the hidden garden along paths or areas tucked under trees or walls. A garden sculpture or relief is like a piece of art in a gallery with the surroundings acting as a backdrop to the work. You need to consider the size, shape, colour and texture of the work. Stone and Marble are particularly good for sculpture in a garden: the materials are durable and blend in well with nature. Before placing the sculpture in a garden, you also need to think about the light, space and the surrounding landscape. Water and lighting also interact well with sculpture creating an illusion and a more complex and enchanting environment. Some of the most popular types of outdoor sculpture reflect nature, abstract forms and human heads or figures.
