Description: The sculpture entitled ‘Rhapsody’ by Simon Burns-Cox was created to illustrate the complexity of love and its beauty with the heart at the centre. The sculpture ‘Rhapsody’ was inspired by the beautiful Metal Work of Morocco.
‘Rhapsody’ is handcrafted and made from Green Guatemalan Marble which shimmers under light. It has a White Portland Stone base. The design was handcrafted and then highly polished by hand. The sculpture looks lovely with under-lighting as the Green Marble shimmers in the light. It is also beautiful near water or as a focal point for a garden or as an interior sculpture.
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.
If you would like to purchase or commission a sculpture for your garden, there is a fixed cost and payment in advance is required before the work commences with a written commission agreement. A certificate of authenticity is available. Please do not hesitate to contact Simon Burns-Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org. or visit his website at www.simonburnscox.co.uk to discuss your requirements. Simon’s work is sold throughout the UK and overseas and can be delivered by courier at an additional cost.
