Project 7×52 – Week 6 – Objets d’Art

There are many aspects to the Historic Gardens that are of interest each and every season. Many of them are made of metal, and these are the ones I have chosen to feature in Week 6 of Project 7×52.


#1 – Railing: A great combination of function and form, created by metal artist Brad Hall.

#2 – Heron Silhouette: Dance of the Blue Heron, by Gerald Jank, stands on the front lawn for all the community to enjoy.

#3 – Plaque Bolt: The detail on the bolts holding our 30 year old “Opening Day” plaque.

#4 – Fire Bowl: This chickadee sits atop our copper fire bowl, in the courtyard during the winter for Winter Market fun.

#5 – Basalt II: This detail shot of Brad Hall’s Basalt II shows the rusty patina developing.

#6 – Tool Bird: This character, created from old garden tools, graces the doorway to the Gardens Shop.

#7 – Detail Wrap: Again, by Brad Hall, this is some of the detail found on posts and rails in the Gardens.

We are so fortunate to have a wealth of wonderful artists who are happy to display their work in the Historic Gardens.
