Residency: Stone green man

photo: Green Man

Size: approx. 1.5 meters high

 

This piece was commissioned by Groundwork South Tyneside to form part of a sculpture trail on the theme of trees. It is carved in sandstone from a quarry near the site. The project involved working with a nearby primary school - pupils visited the trail and made drawings based on their outing and on images of green man carvings. The carving was done on site so that local residents could see the work progress and school children also had an opportunity to try their hand at carving.
