Sculpture ‘Embrace’

Placing a sculpture in a garden can create a fabulous focal point, and a sculpture of this scale definitely has a big impact.

‘Embrace’ is  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 and also features the corten steel fire bowl featured in our previous blog post  ‘Fire Table or Fine Art?’.
