Corten Garden Sculpture

Placing a garden sculpture can create a fabulous focal point to any space. A Corten garden sculpture such as ‘Embrace’ has the scale to make a big impact. Placed in a large or a small garden this sculpture would engage the observer. In this larger garden setting it certainly creates a point of interest and when illuminated at night it looks fantastic when viewed from the kitchen.

‘Embrace’ is a Corten Garden Sculpture by Cheshire based artist Jill Clarke.  The three curving arms of the sculpture are designed to “represent a safe haven, a shelter with metaphorical arms providing comfort and affection”.

Constructed in corten steel, ‘Embrace’ provides a solidity and warmth, and is complimented beautifully by the surrounding soft grasses and herbaceous planting.  The sculpture forms part of a larger garden in Cheshire designed by Matt. In addition the garden also features the corten steel fire bowl (featured in our previous blog post)  ‘Fire Table or Fine Art?’.

Having a repeating theme in a garden like this gives it a lovely sense of repetition and a strong theme which brings a design together. It also gives opportunities to contrast the material with different planting for subtle effect.
