Here come the 'Gourds'!

Here are 'The Gourds', there are three in total tightly woven around a steel frame, designed for a very special Nursery, as play structures within the Norman Jackson Centre in Richmond.

They are a development from my root sculptures which reside at RHS Wisley model vegetable garden.

The project in Richmond has drawn form a variety of artists, each bringing something very unique to the table. Work is still in progress at Hampton Hill.

The garden itself designed by Benedict Green at www.greengardendesign was an idea driven by Pheone Cave, this will be an exceptional space once completed and I will revisit to document it in the spring.
