Rhubarb House, 2004

Rhubarb House

Corten steel, painted rhubarb red inside

The idea came during a conversation with the head gardener. He said how he would like to force rhubarb. By depriving rhubarb of light it grows tender and sweet, with a deep red colour. There for improving the quality of the produce. A sculpture as a cloche.
