Concrete botanical structures look great in this garden

Sunset  – November 11, 2004

Artists George Little and Davd Lewis of Bainbridge Island, Washington, create botanical sculptures that draw surprised smiles from onlookers.

Two of their pieces decorate a border in Ed and Harriet Vincent’s garden on Bainbridge Island. The 22-inch-diameter pomegranate is downright Brobdingnagian, while the 60-inch-wide Gunnera leaf is life-size. Both are made of color-washed concrete and are weatherproof. The leaf has become something of a trademark piece for Little and Lewis, though other artisans now make similar pieces.

In addition to the pomegranate and Gunnera leaf, which start around $1,000 per piece, Little and Lewis make garden benches, mirrors, and painted fragments that look like sections of excavated Pompeiian walls. For information call (206) 842-8327 or visit www.littleandlewis.com.
