Sowing the seeds of art around Wakehurst
8:10pm Thursday 31st January 2013 in News
Sowing the seeds of art around botanical garden giant sculptures have gone on display at a botanical garden.
Seven giant sculptures of seeds up to four metres high are now standing proud at Wakehurst Place, the country estate of the Royal Botanic Gardens, near Haywards Heath.
The sculptures include a conker, poppy seed heads, star anise, sycamore seeds and a sacred lotus seed head.
The pieces, created by artist Tom Hare, form a sculpture trail around different parts of the gardens at Wakehurst, leading visitors from the Visitor Centre to Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank and into the gardens.
Head of Wakehurst Andy Jackson said: “Tom Hare’s work is a testament to the inspiration that artists gain from nature.
“Tom’s beautiful sculptures celebrate the diversity of seeds and seed capsules and enable visitors to take a closer look at their fascinating structures.”
