Modern Masters: Robert Cannon’s Terraform Concrete Garden Sculpture

Robert Cannon's Amazing moss and concrete garden sculpture

I know something is good when I am mid post, and my daughter and her friends start ohhing and ahhing over my shoulder at the images on my screen.  That happened this morning with Robert Cannon’s Garden Sculptures.

I too am taken by his beautiful concrete creations that are filled with intricate collections of plants.   The twist on classical garden sculpture is something I can see putting in a real modern day garden.

He created this fabulous garden chess set with movable pieces.  I think I would find the game pieces themselves  too distractingly beautiful that I would surely loose.

I envy the lucky bird who gets to live here.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. 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.
