OUR GARDEN ART

We collect and intermingle art at Dragonfly Hollow!
Here is a sampling of a few pieces.
A cherry tree stump provides support for the
Thai spirit house where traditional spiritgreeters dwell.
One of a number of glass flowers graces the entry garden.
A ceramic squash never deteriorates.
Glass leaves remain colorful year-round.
Three balls in different materials terminate our gabion seat wall.
Vanessa’s design of the Japanese crests in the
copper-plated steel panels provide the perfect
backdrop to a cheery, stone Buddha.
A Little and Lewis raven head keeps watch
over the 'It's For the Birds' garden from a Douglas fir.

pebble mosaic above, click the image below,
and we'll tell you all about it.

Pebble Mosaic

From left to right: Teak Thai-spirit house greets visitors,
because it's "where the good spirits live."; A collection of spheres:
glass, concrete, and recycled metal; blown glass fronds;
a ceramic squash keeps the crop circle in fruit all year;
bird houses and feeder are watched over by the
hand-painted, concrete raven head by Little & Lewis;
Glass leaves are 'evergreen'; (center) laser-cut, copper-finished steel panels.

WHAT IS GARDEN ART?

Garden art can be cheap or expensive.
It can be brand-spanking new, recycled 'junk',
an ancient cistern, upcycled from a different use,
found on a beach,
or a wonderful collage of anyone's creative imagination.
'Art is in the eye of the beholder' was never so true.


GARDEN ART ELSEWHERE

We find garden art in every good garden
(and even on city streets!). Often the art is what is
known as 'site specific', meaning that it
was designed specifically for the spot in which
you find it. In public gardens it is usually
well anchored, too. Here are some of the pieces
that have caught our eye over the years

Andy Goldsworthy-Edinburgh RBG
A little Andy Goldsworthy-The Slate
Hole Wall-in The Edinburgh Royal
Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, Scotland

Inverewe-1Inverewe-2 Inverewe-3
Nestled into an inlet in the NW corner of Scotland, Inverewe
has an amazing diversity of unexpected plants as well as gorgeous art.

Wisley-1 Wisley-2

The art within the RHS Garden, Wisley, outside of London, is primarily in its shaped plantings.
The image on the left does contain a traditional centerpiece.

Ninfa-1 Ninfa-2

Ninfa, a medieval town turned into a huge, incredible garden,
just outside of Cisterna de Latina, about an hour's train ride from Rome.
Art in this garden IS the medieval city.

SUNNYLANDS

Sunnylands is in Rancho Mirage, CA, and is a drought-tolerant gardener's heaven.
The plants are so sculptural that art would just disappear. The only art is a long reflecting pool.

Chelsea art

Hidden along the Thames River in London, England, The Chelsea Physic Garden
is well-known for its medicinal plantings and so beautifully done.

ALHAMBRA-1 ALHAMBRA-2

ALHAMBRA-3 ALHAMBRA-4

The Alhambra - a world heritage site - in Granada,
Spain should be on everyone's bucket list of gardens
to see. Incredible mosaics, carvings, & water features.

Peninsula-1 Peninsula-2

Peninsula-3 Peninsula-4

Miscellaneous selected art from gardens on
the Bay Area Peninsula, CA. Everything from rusted steel,
fine granite sculpture, painted garage door art,
to willow structures by Patrick Dougherty

Boboli Maya Lin

Roussillion Art

Art is whereever you find it. In this case, water storage
in the Boboli Gardens, Florence, Italy;
natural forms by Maya Lin near Long Beach , WA;
a stenciled wall with the two colors of their native soil in Rousillon, France.

WAGNER-WADDOUPS-1 WAGNER-WADDOUPS-2

WAGNER-WADDOUPS-3

This garden no longer existis, but I remember it as one of the first private gardens that
set a garden theme that made the garden incredibly cohesive.: in the fireplace,
trellising, sculptured plants, gate, and down to the mailbox.
