Porcelain Garden Sculptures by Anya Stasenko & Slava Leontyev

As some of my big garden projects work their way towards being done, I am starting to pay closer attention to the accents, accessories and details that I can layer in once big things like patios, pergolas, and new pathways are laid. I don’t see garden art as much different than inside art.  You can…

Outdoor Art: INSA Gif-itti

Outdoor Art: INSA Gif-itti

Please accept my apologies if this might be a bit too much to look at on a monday morning.  The idea of this art is just too cool though. I’ve mentioned a few times that I think that Grafitti is a bit of a trend for gardens – certainly is to the natural backdrop for…

Hannah McVicar & Introducing the Planting Plan Library

I have an idea for a new regular feature here on Studio ‘g’ that I would love to know if you like or would participate in. Above all things I want this site to be as useful and inspirational to you as it is to me.  And I also know that you all come here…

Garden Art: Dina Weiss’s Picket Fence

I’m hard to please when it comes to garden art.  Though not an art critic (I wouldn’t even begin to pretend I know enough about art to think I could reasonably critique) – I have strong opinions. Art should feel imaginative and expressive.  I’m pretty sure it can’t be bought on a website…because to be…

What I See When I Run – Botanical Portraits

I’m all about distraction and happiness today, despite yesterday’s awfulness. It is the holiday season and as much as my heart breaks and tears well up at the thought of those classrooms, my reality is that my two children were not there…they are here, and they are demanding that we finish the annual cookie-baking-palooza. I…

In the Garden With: Princess Amanita & Dashka

Today  we have two ‘In the Garden’ guests….I would like to introduce you to Amanita and Dashka (Amanita’s creator).   Amanita it a percocious, plant-obsessed, princess who’s style runs towards the dangerous and dark (and after reading her story – I am sure you and your favorite child will want to meet her). Dashka Slater who…

Driftwood Lily Stump Stool

Driftwood Lily Stump Stool

This beautifully embellished piece of driftwood caught my eye today.   The piece was created by Bellawillow, in collaboration with Elwood Designs  and was made from a piece of driftwood collected after the nearby Ohio River flooded. Wood burning, used creatively to make patterns and gorgeous designs in unexpected places seems quite trendy lately don’t you…

Before & After: Ingrid’s Mosaic Garden Fish

Have You ever noticed that sometimes a series of pictures can make something really hard look so simple that you feel like it is entirely doable?  That is how I feel about Ingrid Häußler’s fish.  She shares the steps she took for making it (more than just the 4 images here) on her website and…

Remembering Neil Armstrong: Gardens 1969

Remembering Neil Armstrong: Gardens 1969

When I was kid and adults pulled out the standard kid question (“What do you want to be when you grow up?“), I always gave them a pretty standard kid answer (for the 1970’s) – an astronaut.  Back then, I had every intention of being either the first person on Mars or the first woman on the…

Cut Grass Art by Steve Messam

Cut Grass Art by Steve Messam

I’m really having a tough time getting back to my normal rhythm after vacation.  Does that happen to you? It doesn’t help that in addition I have been working feverishly on the next issue of Leaf (did you read the summer issue?)  that will come out in September and (..and this is just as big…) my little…
