Kinetic Sculptures in the Garden

Don’t miss the ever expanding gardens this season at Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery. Doug Mancheski, of Northern Sky Theater fame, has continued his work on the grounds of Plum Bottom, building on the renovations he began last year. “There was never a time when there wasn’t something in bloom last summer,” says gallery manger Anne Herring, “Just when one flower died there was something else more beautiful to takes its place!”

Hundreds of tulips planted by Mancheski last fall are finally ready to make their grand entrance and usher in a summer of flowers. The expanded parking area has provided easier access to the gallery for those who need it, and it has created more beds for Mancheski’s green thumb to flourish.

Tucked into the natural beauty of the gardens is the work of Ursula Perry. Her kinetic sculptures dance in the breeze to add a touch of art to any space. Crafted in steel and cooper, they are designed for both indoor and outdoor display.
