About the Artwork

One of the six willow crowns, part of an art sculpture to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen`s 60th coronation anniversary in Windsor, is now available

The contemporary coronation crown has been designed by RHS gold-medal-winning John Warland and built by master willow artist Spencer Jenkins, both members of the young British cohort of horticulturalists making their impact on the gardening scene. Spencer Jenkins? willow sculptures have previously been sold at Sotherby`s.

Each willow crown is 1m in diameter and 90cm tall, built from two halves of petal shapes steel frames, completely covered and woven delicately with fine willow. They are currently on display at Windsor Castle, filled with wild flowers, where they have been erected as part of a temporary floral art installation.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
