At last! Contemporary garden sculpture


Taffy by TerraSculpture

When concrete donkeys and St. Francis of Assisi statues won’t do (and no disrespect intended toward either; they have staying power!), TerraSculpture fills a stylistic void with a line of contemporary sculpture pieces that would look great in just about any kind of garden. Billed as accessible and affordable (prices range from $1,950 to $2,965) and individually hand-crafted, these steel sculptures are simply fantastic.

My favorite is Taffy, pictured at top. I could eat up that garden too.


Snap by TerraSculpture

I would totally put Snap in a vegetable garden if I had one.

If you’re in Los Angeles you can view their sculpture garden by appointment; otherwise you can check them out online; shipping is available.

Now I’m fantasizing about getting Taffy into my own garden. Can Santa carry something that big on his sleigh?

This post is not a paid endorsement. I just happen to like these pieces and wanted to share information about them.

    Better be saving your pennies Pam. My favorite is the first one. It is there without being there if you know what I mean.

  2. I love Snap. You’re right…it would be great, in a veggie garden.

    The afforablility??..hmmm…that would buy a lot of mulch.

    But, it’s pretty.

    I keep looking at “Snap” thinking I could make something fun like that with green plastic balls and some scrap metal. Hmmm …..

    I think Santa can handle anything he puts his mind to. I think any of these would be great. I like the taffy best. The taffy has a serene look about it. I could deal with peas too, just beause I like them so much.

    I love that first one, too, Pam~I’ve seen similarly constructed pieces from copper that were also fantastic! gail

    Wow, I would take any one of them. I too like the first one best. SANTAAAA!!!!!

  7. Snap would sure make a statement in my vegetable garden!

  8. Two to three grand might be “accessible” for someone but it sure isn’t me. Price tags like that explain why my garden doesn’t have any focal points. The sculptures are beautiful and artists need to make a living too. But all I can think about is how many plants I could buy for that money.

    That’s true for me too, MSS. Still, the prices are pretty good for original sculpture, I think. I would love to see them get the prices even lower for those of us not on L.A. budgets.

    Luckily you don’t need a bunch of dough to have focal points in your garden, if you want them. Look at Eleanor’s lovely copper bowl on stacked round pavers. A bird bath. A bamboo teepee. There are lots of freebie ideas, or nearly so, out there. —Pam

  9. I’ll take a taffy too! Maybe there’s a discount if you buy two?

    I love the humor in Snap. Great idea for a vegetable garden :-)

  11. Town Mouse says:

    Yes, snap is my favorite as well, but I’ve always had a problem with preferring the concrete to the abstract…

  12. Tatyana says:

    Taffy will fit in any garden, I think.

    Ooh, I love Taffy! Snap makes me laugh. Must look for what’s available here, but I suspect there isn’t a lot apart from concrete cherubs and the like.
