‘In the Botanic Gardens came the season of fruit and plenty, wildflower ceramics appeared in the moonshine.
The stumps of trees sprouted wool in many colours …
In the gardens red thread roots growing from a tree into the ground put my feet solidly on the grass…’

This is the last week to see Sculpture in Context exhibition in the Botanic Gardens, Dublin. There are so many wonderful pieces of sculpture situated throughout the gardens that you could easily spend the day there. The gallery over the restaurant is a beautiful space and houses a large number of smaller pieces in ceramics, glass, fibre, bronze and teabags!
We are really pleased that our piece, Kinship, is slowly being colonized by nature as the grass, and the odd mushroom, grow tall around sections of spreading ‘roots’. The felted pieces, which nestle in the crevices of the fallen tree, bear the signs of insect activity, snail trails and fallen leaves. Just perfect! Here are a few images of it now….
Thank you to everyone who visited and gave us such great feedback. It was an interesting adventure for us to work collaboratively on one piece. Our thanks to the committee of Sculpture in Context for giving us this wonderful opportunity.
