The new garden art: Affordable sculpture

Los Angeles artist and landscape designer Jennifer Gilbert Asher was frustrated with the lack of affordable contemporary sculpture for her clients’ projects, so she began to design her own. Asher teamed up with <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB003045" title="Mario Lopez" href="/topic/entertainment/mario-lopez-PECLB003045.topic">Mario Lopez</a>, who runs a metal fabrication studio in south Los Angeles, and marketing veteran Karen Neill Tarnowski. Earlier this year they launched Terra Sculpture, pricing the artworks between $1,900 and $2,900.<br>

Sculptures are stainless steel, weathered steel and powder-coated steel in pop-art colors. The artist designs and scales her pieces for the residential landscape. At 4 foot 6 to 6 foot 6, the sculptures are suitable for properties with covenants restricting anything above the height of a fence. It also has human proportions: “Where you place a sculpture becomes the comfortable spot to rest the eyes,” Asher says.<br>
