Artist George Carruth
The Garden Smile has evolved over the years into our signature piece. As I walk around our village of Waterville, this botanical face is displayed on walls, fences, decks, entry ways, trellises, and not only on tree trunks, but way up in trees as sort of a nature spirit peering out from the branches. While creating this sculpture my goal was to capture the best of nature and mankind in a peaceful organic format. Customers send them all around the country as gifts to gardeners, or simply something peaceful and serene to hang indoors. While on vacation, I saw the Garden Smile plaque displayed on a building in a tiny fishing town on the coast of England. I guess it became our signature piece because wherever it's displayed, the warm winking smile makes everyone feel welcomed.
