'Metamorphosis - a design journey' was the theme of a garden design competition set by the RHS and Chelsea-award winning designer Cleve West. As well as the theme, a set list of materials to build the garden with was stipulated to make the competition even more challenging for designers. Individual personality could only be crafted through interpretation, imagination and freedom to specify the smaller perennial plantings.
Sharon's interpretation looked at a literal translation of the 'garden design journey' and focused on contrasting the first sketchy ideas of a design [using raw and unfinished materials] to the final fully-formed, landscaped garden. The wire sculpture created an unusual focal point and mimicked the idea of a sketch.
