Gilbert’s Garden Gallery

This season the beautiful landscape of Gilbert White’s has been showcasing some unique exhibits; pieces of art inspired by countryside of the South Downs. Designed by Garden & Art Sculpture based in Chichester, these pieces of art have been plotted around garden and are available to purchase from the gift shop at the Museum.

Cow Parsley

The small Cow Parsley seed heads look great in pots and on the patio. Crafted from sheet steel using the latest cutting technology. Left to oxidise naturally, the seed head’s colour continues to evolve as the natural patina changes over time, highlighting the intrinsic beauty of the material.

Small cow parsley £35

Cow Parsley

Graphical, almost two dimensional, these larger than life interpretations of the Cow Parsley’s seed head sway ever so gently in the wind. The two designs are crafted from sheet steel using the latest cutting technology. Left to oxidise naturally, the seed head’s colour continues to evolve as the natural patina changes over time, highlighting the intrinsic beauty of the material.

Large cow parsley £95
Medium cow parsley £65

A Herd of Deer

The ‘Herd of Deer’ was inspired from watching Deer on a summers evening at the end of the garden. The three curvaceous designs are charmingly simple, almost two dimensional, which probably reflects Simon, the sculpture’s, training as a graphic designer. The pieces are crafted from sheet steel and are allowed to rust naturally, the rusted finish evolving with time, its rich warm hues glowing in the winter’s sun.

£2075 (Pieces also available individually)

Swaledale Sheep
The Swaledale Sheep with its curly locks is crafted from sheet steel. The sculpture is then left to oxidise naturally, its coat continues to evolve as the natural patina changes over time, highlighting the intrinsic beauty of the material.

£380
