As we look forward to longer days, balmy evenings and with Summer around the corner our thoughts are turning to our gardens. With this in mind the garden sculpture exhibition at Old Chapel Gallery in Pembridge opens, showing the work of talented designer/makers in a variety of media.
Sculptor Simon Griffiths, from the North of England creates unique birds and animals in stoneware. He has made several Barn and Tawny owls, kestrels, kites, blackbirds and thrushes, all life size with some displayed on wooden posts ready to be displayed outside.
The work of five Artist blacksmiths will be showing a collection of their latest work in forged steel to include water features, dragonflies, planters, green men, poppies, ferns, sheep, buzzards, herons, hares, owls as well as abstract pieces along with practical garden furniture, garden arch, hanging seat and plant supports. Some will be galvanised to protect them from the weather and some will feature hand blown glass.
Local sculptress, Miranda, creates her pieces from stainless steel and bronze resin and will include, wrens, kingfishers and long tailed tits.
Sculptor David England who lives and works in Herefordshire has carved some new smaller pieces using Portland and Forest Of Dean stone, each one unique and will include the ever favourite Green man.
Finally, sculptor Helen Sinclair, a long established artist with the gallery, produces limited edition and unique contemporary sculpture in stone resin.
