MIFGS Madness 2014 – Come and see us!

This week we are actually at the big MIFGS!  So drop by the gardens and pop in for a chat.  This is what you can expect to find from the land of Lump when you visit the show………..

Lump Sculpture Studio is going all out at this year’s Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show with work on an impressive six showcase gardens, installations and events.

At Lump we work on all size installations through out the year, from industrial/commercial pieces right through to bespoke creations for your garden, courtyard and balcony, our work is regularly sought after by Australia’s leading designers and landscapers.

This year Chris and I and the whole Lump Crew are delighted to collaborate on four of the Show Gardens at this year’s Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, including rekindling our 2013 Chelsea Flower Show “Best in Show” partnership with Phillip Johnson for Landscaping Victoria’s Healthy Green Living garden design. We are also thrilled to continue our ongoing collaboration with Mark Browning of Cycas Landscape Design and Consultancy in his entry “The Patriarchs Garden”.

Phillip Johnson’s urban oasis of vertical gardens, natural pools, native gardens and extensive use of recycled timber will include 10 of Lump’s 3D adjustable light screens (Push Pull Hippo screens) made from corten steel with a natural rusted finish.

Mark Browning’s ‘The Patriarch’s Garden’, is a tribute to family, unity and the journey through life, with the main sculpture designed by Lump Sculpture Studio symbolising Mark’s father as the central figure within his extended family. The garden will also include Lump Wood Stack screens made from Corten steel with a natural rusted finish and a custom–made kidney-shaped viewing porthole.

Other Lump designs to be showcased at the 2014 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, include:

Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers show garden – a custom-made round modular stackable planter.

Peta Donaldson show garden – a 1.3m x 1.3m “Cube” sculpture made from corten steel with a natural rusted finish.

Victoria – The Garden State Cocktail Auction – a 2.2m signature Leaf Skeleton sculpture made from corten steel with a natural rusted finish to be auctioned (proceeds to Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in advancing research into childhood illness and disease), along with four corten steel decorative screens to be featured at the entrance to the cocktail party on the night.

Association of Sculptors Victoria display – a 1.5m x 1.5m “Jacks” sculpture made from corten steel with a natural rusted finish, designed and made in conjunction with RMIT University.

So swing by and see us at the show we would love to have a chat with you – 27th-30th of March at the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens.
