Siting Sculpture in the Garden #2

Sponsored by the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon, Siting Sculpture in the Garden happened Saturday.
 The stone Buddha at the entrance to the garden was used to demonstrate a permanent sculpture installation. We deconstructed it to show how it benefits from the saw blade halo which pops it from the cypress and shows strong shadows. Then he was crowned with a wreath of grass, lavender and alstromeria blossoms to show an ephemeral sculpture can also create meaning in the garden.

 I was worried that my material wasn't enough to keep folks attention for a two hour workshop.
Saturday showed that it could easily fill a daylong workshop, but my voice gave out after two hours.
Soon, I'll be posting my research here on Shadows on Stone, but right now I'm going to rest.
