"People should take the time to reflect on things that make life better in non-material ways, on things that make life more interesting, more enriching and more enjoyable. One of the purposes of Sculptureum is to achieve that objective."

Anthony Grant

"Why did you create Sculptureum?" I think many people will find some of the things here interesting and hopefully enriching. Many people will never see anything like them elsewhere. Things that enrich our lives are good and we need more of them. It's wonderful to see how inventive and skillful some people can be. They can take any material and turn it into an object of interest.

Works currently on display in the Gardens are made from rock, glass, wood, plaster, metal, concrete, plastic, clay, reconstituted stone, other materials, and mixtures of them. Works that are intended to be displayed are made from a great variety of other materials. A huge rhinoceros from Normandy is made essentially from plaster and sacks."
