SPYING TREE

 
 
         

Made at Hestercombe House for the 'Year of the artist'. A living Ash tree snapped off during a storm, the tree remains alive, I have carved a series of holes through the tree which line up to various features in the landscape. The gardens at Hestercombe are based around Capriccio views and this sculpture nods to this.The tree has sprouted new growth and lives enigmatically on.
