Stelae are a group of three slender structures in blackened steel with mirror polished insets that frame and reflect elements of the garden, pluralising our sense of place. Their cool geometry offers a counterpoint to the cacophony of texture and colour in the garden. The mirrored sections isolate elements of the plant life encircling them, and reflect the passing viewer, whose image is scattered and mingled with the garden.
