Tyler is doing a custom installation for The Oregon Garden titled “Wind in the Willows”. It will play with the organic nature of the trees in contrast with the rigid nature of metal. The Wind Chime Willow will be not only pleasing to the eyes, but to the ears as well.
Jacob is creating a unique piece specifically for The Oregon Garden that will challenge your perceptions and assumptions. The piece is a loose representation of the “Sasquatch” and “Bigfoot” concepts and nods to the typical “sighting” experience. His sculpture will be created using wood shingling, a thatched roof effect, and hand manipulation for texture.
Exclusively for The Oregon Garden, Jill will explore the idea of horizon, and how it relates to the highest elevation in the Garden. She is creating garden stakes that will create a repeated rhythm both in form and size, filling in a light and linear manner.
Exclusively for The Oregon Garden, David has created “Chais-ing Dreams”; a bench and chaise lounge carved from the remains of a fir tree. He feels the pace of our lives has increased exponentially and he would like to take the viewer outside of the fast pace. Take a moment to stop and sit and you will be taken back to a simpler time full of wonder and curiosity.
