We are often asked by clients, designers, architects and art consultants to create large scale versions of our limited edition sculpture for commercial and private projects.   We recently collaborated with talented landscape architect Steve Kikuchi of  Kikuchi and Associates to create a 10 foot commission of our sculpture Kismet for his clients near Palo Alto, California.  The large scale of this sculpture was challenging to create, but the results are thrilling and the clients (well-versed and highly appreciative of art) very pleased.  The setting of this commission is one of the most dramatic we’ve seen.

We also recently created 10 foot commission of our sculpture Embrace for a client in the Hollywood Hills.  The sculpture was sited in a reflecting pool in an ultra-modern residence which was recently acquired by the Winklevoss brothers of Facebook fame.

TerraSculpture studio is very proud to announce the debut of a brand new product line (in addition to our limited edition sculpture collection):

Last November Australian landscape designer and HGTV host Jamie Durie brought cameras and clients to visit our Los Angeles sculpture garden for an episode of his new hit show The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie which aired July 9th.

Jamie Durie and clients Nick and Anna debate which sculpture they envision for their landscape from Terra Sculpture’s garden gallery.

Jamie’s muse for Miles and Ana’s garden was the artfully inspired and environmentally-friendly city of San Francisco.  Jamie found particular influences from the California Academy of Sciences (so brilliantly designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano),   Flora Grubb Gardens and public sculpture gardens.  In only three days, Jamie and his crew completely transformed Nick and Anna’s Eagle Rock residence into a stunning, modern, artful environment.   Jamie is one extremely talented visionary and a fabulous landscape designer.  It was a g’day indeed!

Kismet

June 22, 2010

“What chance did I stand against Kismet?”

Kismet, our new oxidized steel sculpture, was a long time in the making.  Many, many hours in the studio stretching, bending, twining and weaving 1″ thick solid steel (just so) is an arduous but gratifying endeavor.  Kismet’s organic, serpentine silhouette twists like an ancient, gnarled tree trunk, yet her inspiration is something much more diminutive: DNA. Fate, destiny, chance: Kismet.

We were honored to be part of this year’s LA Garden Show at the Los Angeles Arboretum and Botanic Gardens. Read about the innovative installation “The New California Garden” created by the brilliant landscape designers of  APLD here in Apartment Therapy.   Some memorable scenes….

Take Flight

February 20, 2010

Pure. Clean. Free. Calm. Simple. White.

Meet our new sculpture: Flight.  Inspired by elegant wings of the ethereal white heron.

Flight is 70 h” x 20 w” and made of no VOC powder coated steel with an oxidized steel base.  All of the painted sculpture in our collection is powder coated.  Why?   Powder coat is non-chemical, non-vapor and non-toxic. It’s basically powdered polyester and pigment, sprayed and then baked on which creates an  extremely long lasting, smooth durable outdoor protection.   The chemical vapors don’t take Flight.  But in the landscape, the sculpture does.

We often have requests for commissioned sculpture.  Brazilian-born landscape designer Ernesto Rocco commissioned  Terra Sculpture to create a variation of Closer for a client in Los Angeles.  Once the installation was complete, we couldn’t believe how perfect this new piece looked in his artful, modern landscape design.   Set poolside, near an inspiring indoor/outdoor entertaining space, the new sculpture enjoys the company of relaxing visitors…. and the daily curious gaze of one protective pooch.
