The full title of this work is ‘The Forest and the Forester (After Maeterlinck)’ and it was launched at Grizedale Live in 2002. The sculpture, consisting of a planting of 12 Scots pine within special enclosures, has an accompanying play of the same title set at its site, which overlooks Coniston Water. The link here is between Coniston Water being where Donald Campbell died in 1967 on board the Bluebird and the play script being based on the Forest Scene from Maurice Maeterlinck’s play ‘The Blue Bird’.
