Chuck found working in his garden not only to be peaceful, but another way to express creativity. He designed his garden using 54 tons of boulders, and planting 1,800 perennials over 1 ½ acres of mostly shade gardens.
After searching for artwork to compliment his garden, and finding nothing that seemed unique or natural, he decided to make his own. He collaborated with his long-time friend and fellow gardener, Tom Widhalm. Together over a period of almost a year, they designed their unique one-of-a kind iron and stone sculptures. They have been adding designs ever since.
Their sculptures are crafted from iron and hand-selected Minnesota fieldstone chosen for character & shape. Their water birds offer a timeless reflection of nature’s finest works, adding a touch of serenity to any environment.
We are really excited about a couple new pieces where the metal is the main ingredient and the rock the add on instead of the other way around. Love love love this spirit sculpture with a stake coming out of her base that shoves into the ground.
