Sculpture in Garden Settings

Sculptures have been installed into our garden in Almoçageme, a small village 2Kms from the sea (at Praia Adraga) with its back to the Serra da Sintra.

Sculptual Garden Setting 1

The older houses in the village have walls made out of rough granite and limestone blocks: which reflects the geology of the area. A pale yellow/pink granite is found on the Serra, and surrounding the Serra are various calcareous stone, one of which has greyish blue colour.

At Praia Ursa, a beautiful geological site, 4Kms south of Adraga, one can clearly see the meeting and mixing of the granite and calcareous stone.

On Praia Adraga there are pebbles, stones, and boulders that have broken out of the local seams. There are, occasionally, pieces of cream-coloured marble to found that originate as pockets enclosed inside of other calcareous rock.

Sculptual Garden Setting 2

In our mediteranean garden we have set the plants on terraces built up from the same mixtures of stones. The sculptures are made also from the same types of stone, but are an intensified expression of what the material, or the individual pieces can reveal.
