Having read about garden designer Andy Sturgeon‘s Faberge Egg a few months ago, I’d had a glimpse of the ‘energy wave’ sculpture he was planning on using for his show garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
However, I was blown away on seeing it take centre stage in his garden at Press Day on Monday. And I apologise now for featuring it in so many of the photos in this blog post…!
What really appealed to me was the way that the shape of the individual copper rings in the sculpture was echoed by the holes in the stone walls.
Here are some more images…
And if you’re wondering who this lovely lady is below…
Well, she was in the garden on Press Day wearing a unique couture dress, crafted entirely from wallpaper.
Made using an early William Morris design, the dress represents the English Arts and Crafts Movement…the period which inspired Andy to create the M&G garden.
And it was designed and created by leading fashion stylist, Damian Foxe who is Fashion Director at the Financial Times.
