British artist Bruce Munro highlights the inherent beauty of everyday objects through his glowing light installations. His latest work called 'Winter Light at Waddesdon' includes illuminated cylindrical bales of straw, plastic bottles, old lampposts and even clothes drying racks completed with fluorescent pegs. Click through the gallery to discover how these large-scale pieces have turned the Manor House gardens into an unforgettable winter wonderland.
Winter Light at Waddesdon is Munro’s third installation at the grandiose British gardens. But four out of the seven pieces on show are completely new and created especially for this winter event. That is the case of ‘Moon Harvest,’ which is made from 20 glowing cylindrical bales of straw wrapped in plastic to evoke a traditional gathering which was done under a full moon (to lengthen the working day.)
‘Beacon’ is a sculptural geodesic dome made from both fiber optic and PET bottles, illuminated from within. ‘Gathering of the Clans’ was inspired by the time Munro spent in Australia and features the iconic Hills Hoist clothes line and fluorescent acrylic pegs. ‘Eden Blooms’ was also part of the show and takes inspiration from vibrant tropical plants he saw while working at botanical gardens throughout the United States.
