Wrath – Eruption of unhealed anger, Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2014

Client RHS

The theme of this gold medal winning garden is Wrath or Anger. The conceptual design depicts uncontrolled feelings of anger as an emotional pressure, self-destructiveness, violence and instability.

Inspiration came from a volcano and its explosive eruption. The focal point of the garden is a raised central feature, reminiscent of an eruptive volcano, which represents destructive emotional eruption, instability and an explosion of anger. A freestanding graphic feature wall and a red-painted dead tree sculpture reinforce the concept of anger, complemented by lighting, smoke and smells.
