Sculptors at the centenary RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013:
Sculpture for gardens and homes; sculpture for business; sculpture for parks and gardens, sculpture for garden designers and landscapers and sculpture for private and public commissions
THE Sculpture WEBSITE receives over 100,000 page views a month and this is where you will find fabulous sculptures in a wide variety of mediums including Brass Sculptures, Bronze Sculptures, Ceramic Sculptures, Galvanised Steel, Iron Sculptures, Lead Sculptures, Metal Sculptures, Plaster Sculptures, Reconstituted Stone, Recycled Metal Sculptures, Bronze Resin Sculptures, Steel Sculptures, Stainless Steel Sculptures, Stone Sculptures, Wood Carving and Wood Sculptures and Wire Sculptures. The web is what we do but we also know that there is no substitute for seeing sculpture in fabulous settings. Included on our sister website THE Gardening WEBSITE are hundreds of fabulous gardens to visit and can think of no better setting to promote sculpture so whenever we can we also look to promote sculpture exhibitions and happily these are increasing with fabulous venues across the country to see and buy sculpture.
The range of subjects is almost endless from Abstract Garden Sculptures, Fountains and Water Features, Garden Ornaments, Planters, Garden Pots, Garden Statuary, Sculptural Metal Artwork, Garden Sundials, Wildlife Sculptures, Domestic Animal Sculptures, and Figurative Sculptures. Many of our sculptors exhibit at the major RHS Garden Shows, at County Shows, Specialist Sculpture Exhibitions and increasingly fabulous gardens across the UK and most will undertake both private and public commissions. Some will have solo exhibitions.
The growing popularity of Sculpture and Garden Sculpture can be seen from the number of exhibitors at the major RHS Flower Shows including RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court Flower Show and RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. Also at the major County Flower Shows and at major gardens throughout the country combining Gardens to visit with Garden Sculpture. Garden Designers and Landscapers have a fabulous choice of Sculpture to incorporate in their Garden Designs delivering the themes they are looking to achieve or an all important focal point for the Garden.
James Doran-Webb – The Tree Climbing Lions of Lake Manyara
Lion populations have dropped from 400,000 in the mid-20th century to approximately 20,000 today.
“Not known for their tree climbing prowess there is an area in central Africa stretching from the national parks around Lake Victoria, Uganda to northern Tanzania where Lions are often seen a lounging in trees, possibly to escape the incessant tsetse fly, to sight prey or perhaps to take advantage of the cool breeze. I have worked closely with the wardens of Lake Manyara National Park to bring life to this cameo of three Lionesses and a Cub interacting with a gnarly old tree. I am actively assisting Lake Manyara National Park in their effort to install radio collars on representatives of the distinctive prides that roam in and near by the national park to alert cock wardens to the movements of the Lions in order to reduce Human – Lion confrontation”
This fabulous sculpture by James Doran-Webb can be seen at the 2013 Centenary RHS Chelsea Flower Show and 10% of the proceeds of the sale of the sculpture will go towards helping this cause.

Increasingly Sculpture is also seen in public and corporate settings enhancing brands and helping to express the identity of organisations. It features widely in interior design and interior designers, architects, planners, garden designers and landscapers increasingly use Sculpture and Garden Sculpture as focal points for interior and exterior designs. Garden Sculpture and Sculpture can be very affordable - and in the current economic climate, arguably an extremely good investment. THE Gardening WEBSITE and THE Sculpture WEBSITE seek to show the complete range of Sculptures - whether for the private garden or home, for business or for the enjoyment of all in public parks, public footpaths, towns and cities.
We are delighted to be invited to Sculpture Exhibitions and where we can, we cover these on both THE Gardening WEBSITE and THE Sculpture WEBSITE - from Chatsworth House, the hundreds of fabulous National Trust properties included on THE Gardening WEBSITE which provide fabulous vistas made even more attractive with the additions of a strategically placed work of art to fabulous sculptures and venues such as Broomhill Art & Sculpture Foundation in glorious Devon.
