A few weeks ago I received an email from the National Trust to say that they were looking for large outdoor Sculptures and did I have anything suitable for their Exhibition at Avebury Manor.
On 25th August my little helper- who is actually my big strong helper and I loaded up five sculptures,five stone bases and three even heavier large freshly sawn oak plinths from the Ragley Sawmill into two laden cars and made our way to Wiltshire.
We arrived at noon on a gorgeous hot day. After exploring the beautiful gardens and realising that it was a gorgeous space to display sculptures in, we then set to work with two National Trust wheelbarrows and placed all five pieces in their designated spaces.
Three hours later all was set and we were able to check into the local Manor Farm B&B.
The private view was that evening where we were able to meet up with the other sculptors and chat.
Avebury is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles, around the village of Avebury in Wiltshire. One of the best known prehistoric sites in England and contains the largest megalithic stone circles in the world.
The Sculpture Exhibition is there all of September and well worth a visit in this historic space and area.
