New gate

I have been upgrading a rather neglected part of my garden. I have made a new flower bed and made the gate from some bits of scrap iron in the skip outside a company. My garden will be open for the Wylye Valley Art Trail in Wiltshire from May 28th to June 5th 2011. By then the plants will have sprouted. A lady faces a unicorn. According to mediaeval legend unicorns were very fond of ladies.

The Scraptors at Stourhead

I have joined Fiona Campbell, Paul Boswell and Rachel Macelay to form a group which we are calling the Scraptors as we all make sculpture from scrap. We will offer themed landscape trails. This was our photoshoot at Stourhead, the iconic National Trust property in Wiltshire , where we have our first "gig", a sculpture trail in the adjacent woods. Here we pose in heron masks by the Heron made by Paul and Rachel.
