Jacob Wolff Halls Greenhouse Royal College of Art Installation

The chances are, especially as this is a one-off art installation, that you have never seen a Halls greenhouse look quite like this one.

It was created by British artist Jacob Wolff who now lives and works in Berlin. He recently used one of our greenhouses for an award winning sculpture at Cowley Manor in the Cotswolds.

Entitled 'rhizome' Jacob used a 8ft wide by 14ft deep Halls Magnum Greenhouse as the basis for his inspiration.

These greenhouses have a strong aluminium frame strengthened by cast iron joints, smooth sliding doors, roof vents and glazing options. Gardeners benefit from a rich variety of features, strength and a spacious growing area, but Jacob had something quite different in mind.

Spray painted in bright reds, greens and blues, this remarkable sculpture was displayed alongside six other pieces in the landscaped gardens of Cowley Manor which was once owned by Sir James Horlick, the malted milk magnate, who rebuilt it to resemble the Villa Borghese in Rome.

With sucn an interesting history and set in 55 acres, the Grade II listed Cowley Manor hosts the Cowley Manor Arts Award that is now in its third year. This event partially funds both materials and tutoring, presents an opportunity for students to create a commercial commission, and places students and their work before a prestigious panel from the world of art.

The award's sculpture exhibition offers an insight into the young talent and work emerging from the world famous Royal College of Art, some of the work will remain on show at the manor while others are offered for sale for those with enough money to invest in great works of art.
