Exploring: Cass Sculpture Foundation

After more than two years of waiting, I finally got the chance to visit the Cass sculpture park, and it didn’t disappoint. The park closes for the winter at the end of the month, so if you’re interested get it in the diary soon!

My favourite pieces by miles were the two works by Bernar Venet, fantastic forms and details from every angle, intellectually interesting and physically/materially rewarding.

I’ve long wanted to be able to make ceramics pieces big enough that you could get right inside of. Working in stone rather than clay Jon Isherwood offers a taste of how that might be.

Two other works that stood out for me perhaps blur the boundaries of what a sculpture can be. ‘Poem in lights to scattered in the square mile’ by Robert Montgomery and ‘Picnic grove’ by David Brooks.

In other cases, the work as whole didn’t speak to me, but specific details did appeal… these included works by Lynn Chadwick, Peter Hide, Keir Smith, David Annersely, Bruce Gernand, Tania Kovats and Thomas Kiesewetter.
