There are 50 roses on display in the rose garden at Wisley, each one is made up of over 40 individually hand cut, hammered and shaped pieces that I have than welded together to form a rose. Although I work in mild steel, I get the finished sculptures galvanised so there is no problem with rust (the final patina is acid etched then varnished).
The installation will be at Wisley May- October 2018. I am taking orders for the roses now (deposit of £100 per rose) but collection/delivery won't be until the end of the show.
Special commissions (you can add birds or bugs to your rose) have to be made completely from scratch and would take approx. 10 weeks from the point of order (so you don't have to wait until October!).
