Dark PlanetPrevious Next
Dark Planet garden sphere is made from hundreds of irregular black puddle stones, painstakingly fixed together to form a unified whole. Thus, raw nature is transformed into geometry, creating a play between the tactile and the visual.
At dusk, light permeates through the fissures between the stones, illuminating Dark Planet's core to dramatic effect.

A power feed to the site is required and connection of the feature to the mains power supply must be undertaken by a qualified electrician. The light for this feature is a waterproof sodium 50 watt/240 volt bulb which will require a 3 core, RCD protected armoured cable feed. A suitable concrete or stone foundation pad will also be required, and both must be organised by the client in advance of installation. It is possible to mount the piece on a plinth of the customer?s choice should some extra height be required.
Installation and delivery are included in the price for UK commissions, and for overseas shipping quotes can be obtained and charged at cost.
The slate and pebbles used on the Dark Planet will exhibit some natural weathering with age, however, periodic cleaning will help preserve its beauty. We would recommend that the feature be cleaned with only warm water and a soft cloth to remove any detritus. Use of any abrasive cleaner will damage the finish and must be avoided. Maintenance instructions will be issued on installation.
