“The Muse” at MIFGS

The MIFGS story continues and this week we take a look at “The Muse” created by Peta Donaldson of Natural Design.

Taking home a Silver medal this year, Peta teamed up with Sceam Constructions to build the award winning design. Last year Peta had a big win, “Best Urban Garden” at the Australian Garden Show in Sydney, in which she featured our Lump Hippo Skin Push Pull Panels. We were pretty stoked to have Peta participating in at MIFGS in such a big way this year, and thrilled that she chose to display our new “Cube” Sculpture in “The Muse”.

The Cube sculpture is made from Corten steel with a natural rusted finish standing 1300mm x 1300mm and featured proudly in the foreground of Peta’s garden. Tranquil, relaxing and modern were just some of the comments we heard from the show goers when they ooo’d and ahhh’d at “The Muse”. I even heard Peta say on occasion while talking to passers by that it was indeed designed as a space to clear the mind and have a moment of peace.

Peta’s design had a very soft and beautiful collection of contrasting colours though out the garden.  The brass plate used as a surround for the ethanol fire burner was a luxurious addition.  Beautiful multi toned and textured silvery grey foliage in contrast to bright green foliage popped against the deep black of the charred wooden cladding used to finish the structure. This charred finish, was actually that. Burnt. The process of charring the timber is renowned for enlisting new life into the wood through protection from rot and insects. Amazing.

Congratulations to Peta and all of the team that contributed to “The Muse” we had a great time and look forward to more fun and more shows in the future.

  • 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.
