Creative Garden Sculptures
You've got to see this site. Houston sculptor Bridgette Mongeon creates bronze, concrete, or clay life-size (or smaller) sculptures of yourself, you kids, your pet, or anyone for your garden or home. She has made personal sculptures for the likes of blues legend B.B. King and country singer Willie Nelson. The site which details the process is truly fascinating.

They completed our new waterfall in 2004 and also constructed our first grotto in the early 1990s. Their work is truly a work of art.
