GARDEN SCULPTURES BY SIMON BURNS-COX
COMMISSIONING A GARDEN SCULPTURE
Simon Burns-Cox creates beautiful handmade garden sculptures and carved reliefs for walls and all types of garden. He works primarily in stone and marble but also other media such as slate, alabaster, wood and metal. These sculptures and reliefs are bespoke and unique commissions which are created specifically for an individual garden.
There is an initial consultation with the client and an on-site visit to discuss installation if required. Simon will discuss with the client the ideas for the design, the choice of materials to be used, the size of the sculpture and its overall finish, the timescale and the costs involved. The client will be kept fully informed throughout the whole process.
THE USE OF SCULPTURES IN GARDENS
Sculpture is often used as a focal point in a garden but it can equally be 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 is particularly good for sculptures in a garden: it is durable and blends in well with nature.
Before placing the sculpture, you also need to think about the light, space and 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.
If you would like to commission a sculpture for the garden, there is a fixed cost with an initial deposit required before the work commences. Full and final payment is required on the day of installation. Please do not hesitate to contact Simon at email@example.com. to discuss your requirements. Simon’s work is sold throughout the UK and overseas and can be delivered by courier.
