Garden Sculpture Direct line to sculptor : Bo Atkinson (207) 342 5796

Indoor and outdoor fountains, concrete metaphors --- bonded stone with fossiliferous textures* --- and sculpting to your specification.

*Real leaves are fossilized into surfaces of concrete sculpture. Fossiliferous leaves are often large rhubarb, comfrey and burdok. Largest works are made hollow and may be filled and/ or incorporated into still larger structures. Options are available, including on-site sculpting.

I grew up as an America child in the ruins of Rome , Italy . Around this "eternal city" fragments of artifacts were commonly recycled in gardens or parks. Too good to landfill, not precious enough for museums, indeed I heard that forgotten layers of past cities lie beneath modern Roma's buildings. A sense of timeless connectivity can grow in these ornamental fragments,it is also called sentimentality. And it also can grow wherever one plants sculpture which has been made in

the age worn style. Contrast the factory multiplied ornament style, which often don't grow. See my outdoor studio.
