Button Wednesday

Last month I went to the Chelsea Flower Show and it was indeed a feast of flowers and garden design ideas. There is far to much to take in but just as my batteries were running low and begging for a drink I spotted this wall sculpture called Button Circle by Tom Stogden I like idea and the subtle colours of the different slates used to make the buttons.

The photo below shows a 3D slate sculpture also at Chelsea. There are more on Tom's website, I like his Chinese Sandstone Ammonite.
