Full Details

Sculpture can be found throughout our gardens and landscapes: in the plants, boulders, countours of the land and in objects created by hand, such as sculpture and ceramics. 

Dustin Gimbel has taken two of his design passions and brought them together, combining the shapes and forms of his southern California plant palette with sculpture, pots and other objects that he’s created out of ceramic. Join him for a discussion on sculpture in the landscape, sculptural plants in the landscape and landscape as sculpture. 

Gimbel’s passion for plants and gardening started at a very early age which later led him to work at specialty nurseries for hands-on experience. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture from Cal Poly and worked in botanical gardens in England while earning the two year Royal Horticultural Society Diploma in Horticulture at Wisley. He has been working in southern California as a landscape designer for more than 12 years. 

While not trained formally as an artist, Dustin considers himself to be a “natural born” artist with an intense drive to create. In the winter of 2015 he discovered a new love of ceramics which came from exploration as he took a concrete planter he designed and had it molded for commercial ceramic production, now known as the “The Point Pot.” Dustin's ceramic work swings from the polar opposites of biological/organic forms to simple geometric lines. Like gardening, ceramic techniques present an inexhaustible array of choices and paths for exploration. His personal garden is part laboratory, part botanical garden, filled with art, sculpture and experiments.
