The Sculpture Trail at Raveningham is set to open on August 1st as planned and run till 31st. Meg is busy creating three new pieces for it which are inspired by the piece she made last year for Raveningham: Swan Woman in the Brambles.
The new pieces elaborate on the theme of escape from coercion; before – Locked In, made of Jesmonite and brambles.
after – Rebirth. The model for Rebirth was made in modelling wax with swan’s feathers. Lucky Jim has had the tricky task of making a mould and casting it in bronze.
The third piece – Infant/Soul – is currently being made from Jesmonite and swan’s feathers on a wooden base.
Sarah Cannell the exhibition curator says: “We felt that it was really important to continue working on the trail to keep our own spirits up, to support our artists by continuing to plan for the future and hopefully to create some hope and inspiration for our regular local visitors when we are able to open the gates.
There will likely be some adjustments to the trail but the essence and magic should remain the same. We are working hard to make sure that the whole trail is one way, so no passing on narrow paths, and will be putting measures in place at the box office and gallery to keep everyone safe.”
