This amazing wrap-around sculpture by Laura Ellen Bacon can be seen at the Holburne Museum in Bath until October 4th 2015.
Her artist’s statement on her website says:
“I relish the opportunity to let a building ‘feed’ the form, as if some part of the building is exhaling into the work.”
It cost £3.50 to enter the Sand Sculpture Festival at Weston Super
Mud Mare recently. Or you could stand on this wall cum bench for a sneaky peek for free.
It took me a while to spot the dog amongst all the soft toys, who I must say did look most comfortable. The sign says “Bracken is not for sale”.
An improvised bench seen from the window whilst my train stopped at Bath Spa station. The Bike Queuing Area sign is new too and I’m intrigued why this station needs one and others don’t.
The Two Tunnels stretch of the Sustrans cycle path in Bath is proving to be most popular since it opened last summer. We had an enjoyable walk through both last month and discovered quite a surprise in the tunnels themselves. However, it’s more appropriate today to focus on the bench at the start of our walk.
The people featured were voted by residents for their resonance with Bath. They are a Roman centurion, Harry Patch (the last Tommy) and Winter Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams.
Perhaps the sign is needed because it’s so tempting to follow the path of flowers?
A delightfully hidden corner of Bath I didn’t know existed until recently.
