Why Stainless Steel & Acrylic?

Garden Sphere FountainI’m often asked about the materials I use for my Art. Mirror-Polished Stainless Steel and Acrylic don’t sound like materials that you’d find in a typical English garden!

Why I use Acrylic

Acrylic – or Acrylic Glass – is a high-quality lightweight thermoplastic that looks like glass from a distance, and yet is easier to work with, shatter resistant, much lighter, and easy to drill for the use of my sphere fountains.

I love the way glass captures light and plays with the Sun’s rays, and I’ve found Acrylic to be a very effective substitute. I discuss more reasons why Acrylic is preferable to Glass on this page.

Why I use Stainless Steel

At first glance, Steel is one of the least natural substances, so why place steel in a garden?

In my case, I only use mirror-polished Stainless Steel, so what I’m really doing is placing uniquely shaped and very durable mirrors in a garden environment.

Whether it’s a Steel Eye or one of my other Stainless Steel Sculptures, my goal is to enhance and reflect the colors of your garden to turn a beautiful space into something magical!

I hope that gives you some insight into why I use the materials that I do. I think the results speak for themselves, but please browse my photos and you can decide for yourself.
