Looking for a focal point for your garden? Something whimsical, yet powerful? Look no further than these lovely metal ladies created by Lafayette, Colorado, artist Arabella Tattershall.
And I say ladies, because the talented Arabella manages to capture the essence of the feminine form while showing us only the external dressing. These are no mere mannequins!
These outdoor sculptures are extremely well crafted; the artist manages to make her stiff, hard, metal medium look supple and alive.
I like the contrast of the custom-cut detailed foliage with the industrial mesh, rods, barbed wire, etc.
I discovered Arabella and her green goddesses (my term, not hers!) during the East Boulder County Artists Studio Tour last weekend. The tour continues this Saturday and Sunday, May 8-9, from noon to 5:00 PM. Go here for more information.
Arabella creates a wide array of sculpture suitable for outdoor use including birdbaths, birdfeeders, fence and wall decor, etc. She also welcomes commissions.
