HAZEL EAR HARP

HAZEL EAR HARP: A commission from Somerset Arts Works and Somerset Wildlife Trust to create a piece from
nature/natural materials outside a community drop in centre in Priorswood in Taunton. I worked for two days outside the local shops for a high visual presence. Lots of people came, asked what I was doing and then where thrilled when the instrument I created took shape and they could hear the music inside the wood, people who don’t normally engage in art were thoroughly convinced by the whole process and the Hazel Harp now remains pride of place in the community centre for anyone to play.
