Aquatic Seat

 

Kilnwood Vale Village Green 2013
Location : Kilnwood Vale, West Sussex
Materials : European Oak
Commissioned by: Crest Nicholson Ltd

Three sculptural seats are now situated on the new village green of this extensive new development just outside Crawley in West Sussex. Two seats are based on a similar design, each one incorporating the outline of giant wrapped leaves in their backrests. One depicts the oak, the other the alder, celebrating the existing and newly planted tree varieties found on the village green. The larger work is a curved seat with vertical elements forming the seat back. It suggests growing, developing forms reaching upwards. It is positioned overlooking the pond and is inspired by the aquatic plant forms found there.
