Prime Matter

Eric Orr (1939-1998)
Cheekwood Prime Matter
Copper with water and fire

This week, I'm taking you on a tour through the Carell Woodland Sculpture Trail at Cheekwood. This is just a place holder till I am able to put aside some time to construct the posts. This Eric Orr sculpture acts as the entrance. Impossible to see at a distance, water runs down the corrugated copper posts. Originally, small flames burst from the top of the lintel and compressed air issued little clouds.

Thanks to Christine Gregory for providing me with loads of background information on the trail. Stay tuned....
