‘My sculptures at Grizedale were influenced by the epic expanses of conifers. They refer to the conifer’s strong vertical lines of growth, that from far below appear to pierce the sky…’
Columns, in Juniper Tarn close to Moor Top, was made using Sitka spruce trunks. 22 feet (6.7m) high, they were once surrounded by trees which have been felled so that they now stand alone.
Other works by Giles Kent at Grizedale include Pinnacles (1996).
