Trail plans

Our Quarry Trail has been postponed for a later date so we are now gearing up for a Sculpture Trail at the Magdalen Project on the Somerset/Dorset borders, which will take place sooner than originally planned. Set in this idyllic farm with lakes, a river and wooded ravines will be our creation of the Scraptorzoic Era - a fantasy fusion of Jurassic and a new Eden, involving floating sculptures and other surprises.  We hope to gain funding through Indiegogo to enable the Trail to go ahead.  More news as it develops… below is some work in progress by Fiona.

Scraptorzoids for a quarry, work in progress

 We are planning a sculpture trail next summer in an old quarry in Somerset. We will create a whole new Geological Era with an ecosystem of fauna and flora. Rachel, Paul and Anthony spent a day creating eleven Scraptorzoids ready for a photoshoot. We are tying up the details but we hope to photograph them in their dramatic location on a scree of boulders at the bottom of a cliff in the quarry  very shortly.

The Owl Tree at Stourhead Sculpture Trail Lives on

Our sculpture trail lives on through the Internet ; the Rex Press Agency has images of our owl tree. Paul's painted owl is still there but the organic paint will fade. The small owls in the holes by  Anthony have been taken away with the rest of the sculptures.  This image is one of ours but to see Rex's  click on  Rex Features
