Garden Art and Outdoor Sculpture
Garden Art, Garden Sculpture and Outdoor Sculpture are increasingly popular in both private and public gardens across Australia. Garden sculptures including metal, stone and glass garden sculpture and garden screens, help to add a focal point to gardens.
Garden sculpture may seem a little ‘out of reach’ for the home gardener. However with modern materials such as lazier cut corten steel it has never been easier to add sculptural elements to the garden or patio. Sculpture adds interest and focal points to landscape design, and with kinetic outdoor sculpture a sense of flow and energy.
Used as a focal point in the garden a large sculpture may be a integral design element or a focus to lead us through the garden. A sculpture at the end of pathway can make a great focal point.
Set by itself or integrated into the planting scheme, traditional in style or contemporary sculpture adds interest all year round and can be illuminated at night for extra impact.
Stone, glass, corten steel, timber and stainless steel can all work well, the textural elements adding to the wonder and mystery of the well designed garden.
Wall art is increasingly popular as a sculptural form for smaller garden spaces and is well suited to courtyard living. Commissioned sculptures are available and are well worth the investment in the long term. Commercial sculptural works for the garden vary greatly, both in form and in price.
Functional forms that have a strong scultptural element can also be ‘built into’ the garden. Pictured right we have a garden seat backed by a corten steel sculpture.
Of increasing interest are kinetic sculptures for the garden, works of art that move are usually commissioned from established artists, some are powered by wind or water.
In general it is the slow and graceful style of movement that is looked for a kinetic work for garden.
