BAP­TISM BY FIRE

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Design -

French sculp­tor Robert Arnoux is of­fer­ing guided tours of his work­shop gar­den in Nor­mandy on se­lected dates this sum­mer (start­ing 1-3 June). A high­light is the Jardin du Feu, de­vised with land­scape gar­dener Guil­laume Gosse de Gorre, which fol­lows the idea of pu­rifi­ca­tion by fire. An in­ner cir­cle of shale de­picts the fire. This is ringed by raised earth, sug­gest­ing the ac­tion of magma. The outer cir­cle shows hu­man fig­ures united and pu­ri­fied, sculpted on a resin base and fin­ished with a fresco tech­nique. 309 Sente Cauvil­laise, 76740 La Chapelle sur Dun, Nor­mandy.
