Starting to lay the rock down.
Yesterday Plum Bottom Pottery got two Japanese Zen Rock Gardens. I’m really excited about these gardens. They’re gorgeous! I think it will be a great place to display some of the outdoor work that I’m planning to work on – fountains, sculpture etc. Yard Beautiful helped enormously with the installation(and of course Angela:) The gardens add a whole new dimension to the woods and perennial gardens in front of the gallery. It feels very welcoming and adds a serenity that’s hard to describe. We found stones in the woods here at Plum Bottom beautifully covered in moss that add an ancient quality to gardens. The gardens try to follow traditional Japanese design principles – with the idea that less is more.
I plan on slowly adding more of these gardens to the gallery grounds over time. As I start to carry more sculpture I think these little rock oases in the woods will be ideal for displaying all sorts of media. So, this summer if your looking for a little zen – stop on by and spend a few quiet moments in the Ancient Zen Gardens of Plum Bottom.
