Excerpt

Excerpt from The Arts and Crafts Garden

 

Sculpture showed off the taste, wealth and education of the owner. It was not often lavishly used in Arts and Crafts gardens, and was usually restricted to one or two key pieces placed at focal points around the house; larger collections could be spread throughout the garden. The extent of the use of sculpture was usually dependent upon the wealth of the owner. Traditional figures and decorative subjects were mostly favored. Urns were common; also fountains and particularly masks. Lead was popular as a traditional material that withstood the British climate well, making it suitable for ornamented water features and troughs, and it showcased British craftsmanship. Stone and composite stone pieces, offered by firms such as James Pulham & Son, were also popular.

Pots and tubs were carefully placed in singles and groups around the house and on terraces. Terracotta and stone were common materials; sizes and patterns varied.
