When I win a million dollars, I am going to buy some of Floyd Elzinga's iron sculptures for my garden.

Nice!

I've always been partial to Mary in a half shell or if you're from the rural Midwest Mary in a tub.

Hee. At least it beats pink flamingos and garden gnomes...

I just bought a gazing globe for the daylily bed (the back corner daylily bed, I mean, as opposed to various other beds which are mostly-or-completely-daylilies, as well as a couple of beds with mostly not daylilies ;-D).

Well, anyway, yes, I confess to being the proud owner of a red gazing globe in a bed of yellow, orange, brown, and red daylilies. [I'd have preferred a gold gazing globe for a better match with the flowers, but unfortunately they don't sell gold gazing globes.]

OK, how about this from Clare Scott-Taggart? Better than a pink flamingo.

Here's another sculptor who does some very imaginative work, some of it being "garden art"...

When my ships sails in I'd like to purchase a couple of pieces from Marcia Donahue and take a trip to S.E. Asia to pick up some hand carved stone for placement in the garden.

Interesting that our art choices may perhaps reflect our personalities. Isabella is wry, mto is contemplative, yardviser is visual and
dear d-d seems to be a real sexy mama at heart:) Now I wonder what ink would say about that ceramic pitcher plant?

My taste tends towards the rustic or even wabi sabi although there is something sensuous about a perfect sphere amongst vegetation. An orb in a bush, so to speak.

Check these guys out, Bainbridge Island, WA. I've been drooling over their book for a few years.

adrienne, thanks for introducing me to Floyd Elzinga's work. The cones are amazing. Off to find more.

@ ink - An orb in the bush is worth two in the hand?
I like that link, rosie. Especially the gunnera leaf fountains.
I need more money and a bigger yard (sigh).

When I win the lottery I want one of Mike Roig's kinetic sculptures and some of Mark Hewitt's big pieces. Roig's work linked below.

Oh yeah, those kinetic sculptures and heroic bells are definitely awesome!
