Lichen and Nest re-installed

Last week I installed my Lichen and Giant Nest for Glastonbury Abbey’s Orchard Sculpture Trail  – summer ’14.  This is now the fourth showing of Lichen since it’s installation for the Abundance commission last autumn.  This time the challenge was to construct Lichen around and up a tree in the Abbey Orchard, which took several days to install!  It will be on exhibition until 28th September ’14, as will my Giant Nest – so plenty of time to go and visit them there.

Progress

Not there yet, but here are a few photos of my progress over the past few weeks.  I think the correct term is ‘hoarder’… my garden’s been taken over and going a bit wild, but the good news is I have enough scrap steel now!  I would still love to acquire some more copper – especially in sheet or bowl form – if anybody can help?   Will soon be embarking on using my new plasma cutter, which should make the job much easier.  There’s still lots to do.  The real art will be to bring it all together successfully…
