Harmony

Washington Msonza

  • “Harmony” is a wonderful and tactile garden sculpture. This piece is hand carved from beautiful Opal Stone Serpentine stone. The essence is a sense of hope and that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. A stunning garden ornament worthy for any garden focal point.

    While depictions in African stone sculptures may repeat, the patterns in the white Opal stone cannot be replicated, making each large garden statue unique. The artist carves the stone using a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for hours through varying degrees of sandpaper until smooth. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave a wonderfully tactile surface, almost irresistible to touch. Enquire today on 0800 772 3253 or get in touch by email,

  • Washington Msonza, Born 1966. Washington was born in Makumbe, Domboshava district in Zimbabwe. Washington learnt to sculpt in Chitungwiza where he spent a lot of his spare time around his brother in-law Albert Mamvura at his workshop. Albert leant his skill from the renowned Nicholas Mukomberanwa an in turn passed the skills down to Washington. Inspired by famous artist like Locadia Ndandarika, Gedion Nyanhongo, Working amongst such accomplished sculptors enhanced Washington’s skills.

    Washington started off in 1988 as an assistant making small sculptures but now his sculptures are exhibited in the finest galleries globally. In 1991 his work was exhibited at the annual Heritage Exhibition of the Zimbabwe National Gallery. His sculptures have also gained popularity with private collectors in South Africa, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Canada and the USA where he has many commissioned works. Washington has led several international international workshops including the International Changchun Sculpture Symposium in China.
