Decorating the garden with sculptures: Sculptor Carl Peverall to speak

A couple of creative photographers who just happen to be husband and wife have hit upon a novel idea: a photo series capturing colorful liquids as they are flung into the air, temporarily forming floating sculptures in the landscape, according to a June 24 Huffington Post interview.

But if you are looking for sculptures that last and will stay put in your garden setting, instead of just hanging as photos on your interior walls, you might want to consider checking out Carl Peverall, who creates stone sculptures out of raw materials, like stone, pebbles and metal, according to a June 24 Facebook post by Mary Palmer Dargan.

Dargan owns Dovecote Garden and Porch Delights Garden Center, which will feature Peverall as this week's Garden Talk Salon speaker on Friday, June 27 at 10:00 a.m., when he unveils his latest creations.

And unlike New York-based photographers Jeremy Floto and his wife Cassandra Warner, Peverall's art isn't going to be going anywhere once it is placed in the garden setting it is created to adorn. So you definitely need to know that if you have him design a piece for you, as there will need to be some careful consideration done regarding where to place it in the landscape setting due to the weight of his pieces.

The Dovecote Garden presentation this week will be free to the public, but seating is limited, so advance registration is required. A detailed online printable map to the garden facility from Cashiers, N.C. is available on the garden company's website for those planning to attend.

And if you come to hear Carl Peverall talk about his different sculptor forms and designs, be sure to stick around for the Dovecote Garden grand opening and ribbon cutting, which will begin at 4 p.m., followed by festivities from 5-7 p.m., which will include music from Steve Johannessen.
