Work goes into stunning Sculpture Garden in Peille


Paul travelled to France last week to install a selection of pieces at a new sculpture garden in Peille, near Monaco.  Set in a classic Mediterranean farm estate the gardens have been designed by Chelsea winner James Basson.

You can read more about this beautiful place on the Marshal Murray website and blog.


Sculpture installed at ‘Gardens by the Bay’ – Singapore


We were delighted to receive these images this morning from Derek Chan of Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. This unique horticulturally themed setting spans over 101 hectares of land and is a must see if visiting Singapore.


Paul’s sculpture ‘Watching Clouds’ was exhibited at the on form exhibition last year. It was then sold and shipped to Singapore where it sat patiently waiting for installation. We are so pleased to see it has finally been given it’s position in this exotic and spectacular setting.

Tom Dixon at the Mondrian Hotel (London)


If anyone is lucky enough to go and stay at the Mondrian Hotel in London, be sure to look out for one of Paul’s sculptures on your way to the spa.

The ‘Red Onyx Torso’ was chosen by Tom Dixon who has designed much of the building in his unique style. The russet tones of the onyx compliment the copper background perfectly.

Please do let us know if you visit the hotel. We love to hear from the ‘eyes on the ground’, or better still put it on Instagram! Paul’s username is: @paulvanstonesculpture


Abu Dhabi installation


Paul travelled to Abu Dhabi last week to assist in the installation of the large heads seen at Chelsea last year.  ‘Kissing Profiles’ are 2 large pieces made from solid Italian Carrara marble and weighing nearly 3 tonnes each!

They had been gently making their way by sea for a for the last few weeks and once they arrived safely Paul joined them to ensure the installation went smoothly.


‘Rise and Fall’ finds a (splendid) home


One of Paul’s large pieces was installed last week in a fantastic garden in Oxfordshire. This graceful piece has done rather well for itself and now sits in the grounds of a beautiful 16th century house, built on the grounds of a Benedictine priory. Lucky thing!



Coombe Sculpture Garden Opens


Please excuse the delay, but we’re excited to inform you that Coombe Sculpture Garden opened its doors this week. Paul headed there straight from Chelsea to install and set up new work and polish and re-site existing works.

The garden is looking fantastic and apparently the lasagne being served up on the private view (Sunday) was divine.

They are open each weekend this month.
