GPAP – Metal Roses

Broomhill Sept22 075Today I have been working hard an article that I am writing about Broomhill Sculpture Gardens for Devon Life magazine. Whilst sorting through the photos I found this picture of a favourite of mine. I’m afraid I can’t tell you who it is by or what it is called.  I can tell you that it is made from old road signs, is shaped like a cast off crinoline and decorated with flowers.  Some of these blooms are draped in lichen, an addition made not by the artist but by Mother Nature.  I wonder if whoever fashioned this work envisaged this soft green addition to their metallic masterpiece.

    • I thought that too, it is good that these sculptures are changing in the environment they are living in. I am sure the artists must have considered that. Eventually some will disintegrate, as is the way of all things 🙂


  1. Nature has a way of enhancing – I agree with you, these are beautifully crafted, Broomhill is on my ‘Must Do’ list for 2016 so I look forward to seeing them.
