The Fern

Michael Laubli’s single 3.4 meter high fern frond pays homage to all the native fern species nestled in bush land in our region from tree ferns to micro ferns.

Symbolically ferns have been adopted by many cultures around the world and classically represent the renewal of life. Aesthetically it is a great legacy and testament of how a species unchanged for millions of years has found a place in basic design across the globe.

The sculpture is made up of two components. The stem is constructed of 10mm steel and the fern fronds have been manufactures from recycled Fallon Timbers. They complement each other perfectly with the deep rich colour and warmth of the timber as an organic form held in shape by the long stretch of solid steel that runs the full length of the sculpture.
