Chelsea flower sculpture show

On this morning’s breakfast news I spotted a fabulous metal sculpture as a backdrop to the weather forecasts.

On further investigation I found out it was the M&G Garden at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show, designed by Andy Sturgeon.

I thought it looked a little familar, so I checked Andy’s blog and saw that he’d also created one of the easter eggs for the easter egg hunt last month.

Although his egg was steel, the garden sculpture is made from hammered copper.

The focal point of ‘The M&G Garden’ will be the large copper sculpture made from approx 3,800 copper washers. Reminiscent of a piece of arts and crafts jewellery the sculpture is designed to convey energy and movement as it weaves through the garden and water pool. Watch the video below to find out more and see some prototype versions of the final sculpture.
