Bristol Botanical Gardens
During the Easter holiday week-end, we visited Bristol University’s Botanical Garden. I had no idea there was one and was delighted with what I found. The many exotic plants had been joined by a varied selection of sculptures. Some of their creators were there to show how it is done. This included a small forge where iron was being shaped into amazing pieces.
This selection of glasswork shows the complexity of this art. It really comes into it’s own when the light is right and you have a window to hang it in. The flowers have ‘petals’ made of glass.
This piece reminded me of a certain bird on social media!
This chap could be found in among the trees. He reminded me of other similar sculptures that I shared at Broomhill Sculpture Garden
