Metal sculpture. Tired of cast concrete rabbits peeking out from behind your rhododendrons? Consider a piece of metal sculpture to create unusual interest and drama. Many metal artists will work with you to create a one-of-a-kind piece.This piece, by metal artist Benjamin Parrish, works on several levels. The strands of hair mimic the nearby twisted grapevines. The implied movement of hair blowing in the wind lends an additional layer of interest. Finally, on sunny days the bright metal reflects precious light in this shaded woodland garden. On cloudy days it mimics the overcast sky.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Bring on the Garden Bling With Artful Stainless Steel
Mild steel is an alternative to stainless that is more malleable and less expensive, says Parrish. This steel contains less than 0.25 percent carbon, which makes it easier to work. It can rust and stain; therefore it is generally sealed with epoxy or urethane, or even painted. Various oxides can be applied to mild steel to achieve a patina. This sculpture, formed out of mild steel by Parrish, beautifully reflects the morning light.
