Inspired by the pleasing form of globe artichokes, these garden sculptures comprise many individually cut and moulded zinc leaves superimposed upon a spherical frame and rising to a point.
Being handmade, each artichoke is unique, and the nature of the zinc means that each will weather slightly differently, adding to the effect. Over time, the beautifully patinated blue, silver colour of the zinc mellows, but is not damaged by the elements.
The artichokes rise from a square base (its moulding referencing a classical Doric column) so they will sit stably. Arrange amongst foliage in a courtyard garden, as a collection in a bed or raised on a pedestal as part of a vista in a larger garden. Wherever placed, they add compelling sculptural detail to careful planting.
The Zinc Artichokes come in three different sizes.
