AN OUTDOOR MASTERPIECE WORK WITH SCULPTURES Janita Singh Sculpture statement ... Plan carefully, pictured above and right, sculptures by Lump Sculpture Studio. PLAN CAREFULLY When choosing statement pieces for outdoors, think of the size and shape -- something which works in harmony with your garden. Also pay attention to the size of your garden. Think of wear and tear. Stainless steel, concrete or ceramic are durable and need less maintenance. Wooden pieces look good but would require regular maintenance. Fibreglass is excellent. What's the focal point? Where do you want most attention drawn and picture your piece there. Think about patterns, designs and 3D effects. Trash to treasure -- you may have things considered old and boring such as old windows and doors, used fencing material, wires and old trellises which can be turned into statement pieces. Look at the whole picture -- the story you want your garden to tell. DECORATING OUTDOOR space needs more then just well-kept gardens. Today, sculptures play a huge role in adding beauty and interest. With outdoor areas be- coming increasingly part of extended living areas, giv- ing more thought to design is essential. Experts at Bunnings Hardware say sculptures can be anything and made from anything. Bunnings national garden decor buyer, Sharyn Pe- trzela says its important to understand your garden's theme to decide what works. ''Decide the sculpture's role. Will it be a centrepiece or a complementary decor- ative piece? If you plan to make it the focal point of your garden, then you should pick a larger statue for visual impact. For comp- lementary pieces, go for smaller sculptures,'' she says. Sculpture expert, Lump Sculpture Studio, says any- thing that draws attention will work. It produces state- ment pieces from 3D feature walls, to lighting, mirrors and stand-alone sculptures. Details: lump.com.au; bun- nings.com.au Seen any great ideas?
