‘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…’
Pinnacles, in Juniper Tarn close to Moor Top, was made using Sitka spruce trunks. The highest was 8 feet (2.4m) above the water. Few of the original trunks now remain but those that do still enhance the tarn.
Other works by Giles Kent at Grizedale include Columns (1996)
