The madness of MIFGS 2014

This years MIFGS was a blast. An one of the best shows Lump have been involved in so far.

It simply wouldn’t be right to throw all the gardens and their creators into one post. Each and every garden we played a part in deserves its own page of Lump love, so I’ll elaborate more on each garden in the weeks to come.

We bumped in with four outstanding show gardens and displayed a sculpture in the Association of Sculptors Victoria (sculpture Walk). At the bump in stage, Chris managed to get a good fix of the show garden comradery that develops between the construction crews over the nine day set up.

We rocked up with the whole Lump Crew for breakfast on opening morning and we were greeted by Peta Donaldson from Natural Design with a shining, winning Silver medal for her garden “The Muse”. Front and center on “The Muse” was our very new and gorgeous “Cube” sculpture.

Taking the cake was Mark Browning. He threw his arms around us in celebration, winning Best IN Show, Gold AND Best Construction for his beautiful and moving creation “The Patriarchs Garden” in which he lovingly featured a collection of our custom made Lump pieces.

We enjoyed it all fully. We stood in the rain with soggy flyers. We caught the sun when ever it came out. We changed from King Gee to Black Tie. And we danced the show jig with a few bevies to soften the aches and pains that develop from standing all day.

But best of all we were reunited with some old friends, we made some new friends and we celebrated at the old Pumphouse which, without a party there, MIFGS would not have been MIFGS.

  • A beautiful addition to the Lump Studio collection of original sculptures; the Faceted Orbs. The simplicity and warmth of the Corten Steel is heightened by the Stainless Steel accent piece featured in each Orb.
