I’d seen the preview photos of the new ‘unfolding’ exhibition at Sudley House, but seeing the sculptures in reality was still quite a surprise! The sheer size of each piece was much bigger than I had imagined, which gave them real impact. Seeing them in situ at the house allowed you to see how they fit in with the building and its rooms. Each sculpture has subtle details that link them to each room – whether this is its furnishings or the original use of the room. At the same time, each piece has been designed to represent different aspects of the mind.
Below is the ‘Shell’ sculpture that is in the morning room (also known as the study), which you can see has a floral pattern on the inside. This is inspired by the wallpaper that is in this room.
The red pointy creations seen below are laid out on the dining room table of the house.You can see that the darkest shades match the red upholstery on the chairs. Read more…

The operation went smoothly, despite a bit of rain. You can see photos of the move on our Edward VII monument Flickr slideshow. Read more…

Students and staff from EMTAS (Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service) worked with artist, Hilary Manuhwa to create this wonderful piece of contemporary stone sculpture representing the theme of ‘freedom’. Hilary uses the shona style of Zimbabwe as his inspiration and showed everyone the traditional skills. I’m told it was a proper learning experience for everyone involved and that they took a lot of pride in their creation. Read more…
