Showcased within a beautiful garden on the edge of Bath each piece of sculpture will be carefully selected to make the most of its setting. Take time in the garden to wander and reflect or view from the terrace while enjoying a cup of tea and slice of cake. Make it a special occasion by choosing the full afternoon tea with homemade scones, cakes and sandwiches. Individual pieces of sculpture will be for sale.
Cathy Judge lives in Chewton Mendip. Her interest is in sculpting the female form with an emphasis on the tactile and curvaceous. Defined edges follow and accentuate the body's natural rhythms, patterns and lines. The pieces are serene and celebrate the timeless beauty of the body. The originals are made using wax or clay and then cast into limited editions using both bronze and Resin. You are welcome to visit her studio/gallery/garden in Chewton Mendip to see more of her work, much of which is not available in the galleries.www.cathyjudge.co.uk
Daren Greenhow lives in Llanddewi Skirrid, South Wales. Daren has worked as a sculptor full time for 15 years, prior to which he followed a career in science. He has always enjoyed inventing and making and enjoys the challenge of taking everyday objects and reinterpreting them in new and unexpected contexts as expressed in his metal sculptures. These are completely original, unique, intriguing and always immediately identifiable as his work. His medium of choice is steel, using welding as the primary joining technique. His work is figurative and abstract, large and small, indoor and outdoor. He models a diverse range of subjects including the human body, mammals, fish, birds, insects and mythical creatures. Daren would be delighted to consider a unique commission around your favourite theme.
