There are only two weeks left to visit the Sculpture Trail.
Blessed by glorious weather for much of its time this year, the Sculpture Trail will surprise and delight as it winds its way round three acres of old orchard and grassland at Raveningham..
Over thirty artists, curated by Sarah Cannell, have exhibited a huge variety of creative approaches. From the reuse of old cutlery in James Barrett-Nobbs’ silver woodland birds, to Meg Amsden’s wood sprites closely modelled on the detail of individual trees, to casts of fallen apples from Gordon Senior and, above, the small contemplative ceramic figures from Jane West.
There are also mosaics, porcelain mushrooms, abstract sculptures and casts of horse and riders. But you have to go there to appreciate each one. Many of the pieces have an underlying message, particularly the tiger, from Cindy Lee Wright, raising awareness of global endangered species; Nick Ball’s recycled crisp packet banner drawing attention to plastic waste and the art installation from Heather and Simon Griffiths commemorating the end of the First World War with boots and pigeons along the trail.
Open 10am to 5pm every day until 16 September the trail also includes pieces from the Harleston and Waveney Art Trail and a pop up gallery in the house. And of course, Ravenous, the café is open to refresh you with teas, coffees and light lunches.
Don’t miss it.
