Eco Garden Art

Now that the season of gardening is in full swing, many of us are spending long days and evenings in our backyard green oasis.  Many gardens have art, fountains and bird feeders, what if the art you choose to ad to your garden  could make it even greener?  Have you heard of Water Works Garden Sculpture ?

While volunteering at Epic this May, I  discovered these wonderful pieces of art made of recycled materials such as musical instruments , copper, silver, brass and glass collectibles.  Made  in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada!

The artists name is Douglas Walker. While browsing his site and looking at many of these amazing one of a kind pieces I also checked out his blog , where I saw some more photo’s of his shop and work.

With a few weddings and many warm nights ahead I think that I may consider one of these for gifts this summer.

These pieces are truly Eco art, beautiful, functional and like nothing you have seen before! Be sure to check out his upcoming festival dates to check some out in person, you will not be disappointed!
