NEW GARDEN SCULPTURE COLLECTION BY SIMON BURNS-COX
RHAPSODY BY SIMON BURNS-COX
The sculpture ‘Rhapsody’ is part of my new Garden Sculpture Collection. It is made from beautiful deep Green Guatemalan Marble with a Portland Stone base. ‘Rhapsody ‘ is inspired by the Moroccan Metal work made in North Africa. It is designed to represent love. The sculpture is intricately carved and highly polished. ‘Rhapsody’ is particularly lovely with under-lighting. Beautiful near water or as a focal point for all types of garden. It can also be used as an interior sculpture. It is for sale and made to order in all dimensions.
Simon Burns-Cox creates beautiful handmade garden sculptures and carved reliefs for walls for all types of garden. He works primarily in stone and marble but also in other media such as slate, alabaster, wood and metal. These sculptures and reliefs are often 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 material 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 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, colours, and texture of the work. Stone is particularly good for sculpture in a garden: it is durable and blends in well with nature.
Before placing the sculpture in the 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.
If you would like to purchase or commission a sculpture for your garden, please contact Simon who will be happy to discuss your requirements.
