Sculpture in the Garden

I’m hoping to be able to attend Jilly Sutton’s forthcoming masterclass at the Oxford College of Garden Design, on the 11th November.  The OCGD masterclasses are great opportunities to hear first-hand from internationally renown experts, and attendance is not just limited to current students and alumni.  Last year I was disappointed to miss the legendary John Brookes, but Duncan Heather did post an excerpt on his blog – it’s well worth a look.

The Architect - Jilly Sutton

I’m particularly looking forward to this one.  I feel Jilly’s work has a kind of softness in it’s beauty which is rarely found in contemporary sculpture: she usually works in wood, and many of her subjects are faces – with soft, gentle features.  It takes a rare skill to bring out the natural lines of wood grain and combine it with the subject so successfully.
