Les Botta Garden Sculpture by Artists Serge Bottagisio and Agnes Decoux

I have long adored the work of Serge Bottagisio and Agnes Decoux but didn’t actually know who the artists were. A few years back, Cleve West made a garden for the Chelsea flower show that featured their work. (when I find a great picture of that garden I will post). It is one of the my all time favorite and most memorable gardens. Their pieces are large, textural balls, stone shapes, columns, funnels, bowls and boxes that can be used as sculpture, planters, or water features. Their website doesn’t have any words to explain their process, but the concrete shapes seem to axe carved…interesting…and utterly beautiful.

I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Amazing work. I thought grinding metal all day was hard work, but hand-axing stone? I appears that each ax mark is carefully arranged giving the surface of the stone a cross hatch-like texture.

    The bottom image shows stone as soft looking as a pillow or cushion.
