I have two favourite sculptures, Tom Hare, a sculptor that works with willow and Rupert Till whose medium is wire, silver and bronze.They are both equally talented; Tom largely works on woven structures for commissions; of which more recent commissions have been largely botanical, scaling and magnifying detail.
Rupert also accepts commissions and is largely focused on the animal world; which, through years of anatomical observation have result in an ability to grasp faultlessly and speedily the essential character and proportion of an animal.
My favourite piece from Rupert’s portfolio are the Geese, they look so lifelike, he has really captured their movement and form, and they would look fantastic in our lower garden grouped together in the long grass.
My favourite piece from Tom’s portfolio are the Poppy Heads, we intend to put structure in our garden once it is complete and I would love these to have their own special place amongst the flower beds.
Time for your own graceful gaggle…
