Scrap sculptures for Bournemouth

We have just received confirmation of a  commission in February 2015 to make three sculptures with recycled materials,such as those thrown out by the average household,. There will be  a competition in Bournemouth schools to be run by the Council. We will choose the winning designs and make the sculptures which will go on display before being given to the winning schools. The theme will be the sea.

 Above is a  monster which Paul and Rachel made with plastic bottles and exhibited  in 2011 in a lake at Stourhead, the National Trust property in Wiltshire.

And we have been offered a potential project with a wildlife reserve. Father Christmas has come a little early.

Birds of a feather flock together at Bird Henge

 Our Bird Henge is attracting more birds. The one above has just landed and the Black Bustard below  a couple of weeks ago. The beak of the one above is the front lamp of a Peugeot Valeo found  by the road. The horses inspect each new arrival and nudge them.

Anthony has long been a fan of Anselm Kiefer and this was a must. There is one more week left to see the exhibition at the Royal Academy in London.
