Sited within ten acres of stunning arboretum and wildlife inhabited water gardens which have been developed with a series of landscaping projects and the introduction of thousands of new plants, bulbs and specimen trees. Taking advantage of the natural contours of the rolling Surrey Hills has resulted in the perfect haven for the display of sculpture, with over two miles of paths meandering through mixed heathland and woodland in a natural valley enhanced by three lakes fed by two natural springs.
Bronzino® containers are hand-made by artisans from solid copper and zinc and are suitable for use inside and out. All designs are exclusive to Bronzino, and created by Scottish artist-designer Kenneth Topp. Each is inspired by historic metalworking techniques, but are not copies of old designs, more reinventions of the past along with new forms that meet contemporary functional requirements.
Each Bronzino® design requires a different application of skill and technique. For example, our riveted pieces use one of the world’s oldest techniques for fastening metal, while ribs add strength, durability and a pleasing rhythm to our best-selling ribbed designs.
The traditional patinas give each piece a unique colour which will be enhanced through time.
The fine materials and handiwork that characterise each Bronzino® piece sets them well apart from ordinary containers, and makes them easy to incorporate into sophisticated and elegant interior schemes. Their uses extend well beyond the display of plants – clients are also known to use them as fountains, log baskets and home office storage.
The lightness of the containers also makes them ideal for locations where weight may be an issue, such as roof terraces, balconies and yachts.
Bronzino® works with architects and designers worldwide.

Where possible we've designed the instruments to be played simply by using your hands. Where beaters are required, we've engineered them as one complete piece so the ends do not become separated and they're attached using coated stainless steel cables. Most of the instruments themselves are made from stainless steel or aluminium with high corrosion resistance, making them outdoor musical instruments which stand out in terms of durability and performance.
Percussion Play instruments are designed to encourage audience participation in a hands-on way, to provide opportunities for meaningful engagement whilst outdoors.
