Coastline Traces – Sefton Coastal Path Sculpture Trail

2015-08-03 17.13.50-2 sml 1

I am incredibly excited to have been awarded the Sefton Coastal Path Sculpture Trail commission along with my good friend and fellow artist Sian Hughes.

Over the next few months we will be working flat out to deliver numerous workshop for people from Sefton which will form parts of the six sculptures to be installed along the coastal path.

The Sefton Coast is an amazingly rich landscape with rare flora and fauna including the sand lizard, natterjack toad and red squirrel as well as important Neolithic and Mesolithic archaeological sites, shipwrecks and smuggling, asparagus and rabbits and all set against miles of stunning pristine beaches and sand dunes. We will be working with clay and resin, mosaic, glass scraffito, wire sculpture, cyanotypes and embossing aiming to create a visually exciting and information sculpture trail along the coastal path.

 The project is called Coastline Traces and we have a website and facebook page which we will be updating regularly with our progress. Please do follow, like and share us on:
