Artwork from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park featured in the Best Show Garden at the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show.

A sculpture by acclaimed American artist Ursula von Rydingsvard featured in the Laurent-Perrier garden at the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society show this week.

It was designed by award-winner Luciano Giubbilei who has struck gold for the third time.

The garden features Erratus, a strong wooden sculpture, by von Rydingsvard.

Its inclusion marks the beginning of a partnership between Laurent-Perrier and the sculpture park..

Peter Murray, Executive and Founding Director of Yorkshire Sculpture Park, said: “We are thrilled for Luciano Giubbilei and Laurent-Perrier’s significant success at Chelsea.

“The highly textured and tactile sculpture Erratus perfectly complements the beautiful materials, colours and finishes combined within the Laurent-Perrier garden, and we are so pleased to have been able to facilitate this delightful addition.”

This is the third time Luciano Giubbilei has designed a Show Garden for Laurent-Perrier, following gold medal-winning gardens in 2009 and 2011.

The first large-scale exhibition of work in Europe by von Rydingsvard can be seen at YSP until January 2015. The exhibition in the underground gallery and open air features more 40 works of drawing and sculpture made over the last two decades.
