Paul Vanstone is very busy preparing the stand for RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which runs from 23rd until 27th May, with the gala preview on Monday 22nd May.
In collaboration with Coombe Sculpture Garden, Paul will be exhibiting for the seventh consecutive year. We can be found at Stand WA58, on the Western Avenue.
Our collaboration with Coombe Sculpture Garden has received 5 and 4 star awards for the past three years. This year we will be exhibiting exciting new and previously unseen sculptures.
We do hope you will be able to join us on the stand!
Finally the installation in Lagos is complete.

Paul recently passed through Carrara on one of his regular buying trips and and to explore new material.
While searching for particular hues that evoke the feeling of horses (more on this later) he discovered some real beauties. One was this beautiful clear white onyx that resembled fossilised ice more than stone.
He also found this stunning Red Jasper below.
These trips are such an essential part of the creative process, to stimulate ideas and projects. Walking through the stoneyards and talking to the stone specialists opens new pathways for Paul’s work. And the sunshine helps.
Paul had a trip to France last week to set up some pieces sent ahead to Monaco. The work was installed at a new exclusive members club 39 Monte Carlo. I’m sure that the good followers of Paul’s endeavours are highly likely to pass through at some point so when you do, head straight for the terrace to check them out.
