Such a treat to make a feature for a show garden this year.
The Bacchus Garden was beautifully designed and planted by Jean Wardrop (www.wardropdesigns.co.uk ) and immaculately built by RDC Landscape Design (www.rdclandscape.co.uk)
The design was inspired by Bacchus, the Roman god of wine and also by Hampton Court Palaces Great Vine, planted in 1769.
The pools are made of bronze resin with a liver patina.
The largest has a diameter of 120cm the smallest 75cm.
These are a couple of pictures of me trying out the water flow in my studio.
Another busy and fun open studio weekend at Clements Yard.
One of three beautiful yards with over 50 artist and designer studios in Kennington.
So many things to see and buy, next one will be in early December.

I set 5 pieces up at Delamore Art, Ivybridge, Devon this year and was blown away by the beauty of the grounds. The blossom was extraordinary.
It was an honour to be asked to create a memorial bowl for an alumni of Mecklenburgh Square in Bloomsbury, London .
