Synopsis
In a lava field, it was the perfect site for a man whose design mantra was art-nature/nature-art. Here he designed a minimalist, part sunken garden echoing the barren dramatic volcanic landscape but created an oasis within, using sculptural palms, cacti and succulents . Organic and found objects such as old stone animal troughs, agricultural tools and goat skulls were brought into play as sculptures and water features. The garden also was home to his art including the dramatic mosaics colourful on the stark white walls and his own sculptures.
