“Connected Living”

Boxgrove Gardens – Linden Home – Guildford

2013 has been a year totally consumed by  my largest public project to date. The Boxgrove Gardens developement by Linden Homes in Guildford Surrey, is a prestigious site with access to the beautiful Merrow Downs behind. With existing landscaped gardens from the converted Country House, and walks traversing through from the main road. Oppotunity to draw the public  visually and mentally through to the landscape beyond. Conceptually, the mirroring in abstract form of the Surrey landscape, and the ideas behind a connected living experience for the residents, maquettes were developed and have been carved full-scale. Only installation remains in the coming weeks.Here are some glimpses of the process and finished carved works. Looking forward very much to revealing them in full soon.

“Love for Life”

Manor House School, Bookham, Surrey
This 500 year old beech tree, sadly felled through disease, was my biggest challenge of 2012. To imortalise the inherent forms, in abstract metaphors of the place, a mirror to the moto of the school… “To Love is to Live”…..
