Coughton Court Sculpture Garden

By , 07/30/2013 11:32 am

Just installed my Grayling sculpture at Coughton Court Sculpture Garden. The fish sculpture, created from metal rods and found objects, is sited beside the lake – so it is more Lady of the Lake than Lady of the Stream…

Coughton Court, a National Trust property, stands in 25 acres of grounds and holds some of the most beautiful gardens in the country, created by the Throckmorton family – who have lived at Coughton for 600 years.

This August, the Throckmorton Family Gardens of Coughton Court are the setting for a fine, stunning Sculpture Exhibition of over 250 works from over 60 national and international sculptors from all over the UK.

Fish Sculpture Commission

By , 07/10/2012 9:52 am

I created this fish sculpture after I was commissioned to create a sculpture to celebrate a 6th wedding anniversary. The wife wanted to gift the sculpture to her husband who has his own stocked lake where he frequently fishes. And although he fishes for a range of species one of his favorites is the carp (Cyprinus carpio carpio). I made a number of sketches and decided to go with the stunning mirror carp variant that was originally bred by monks, centuries ago, to have less scales for the diner plate. Some of the mirror carp have a row of large scales running along the lateral line which I decided to use six scales either side to depict celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary. After settling on final sketch, having received final approval from the client, I scaled up the drawing with chalk directly onto my workshop floor and set about creating the fish sculpture. I am pleased to say both the husband and wife are very happy with the final sculpture.
