Alison Crowther is returning to FRESH AIR 2017, the biennial sculpture exhibition held at The Old Rectory in Quenington, Gloucestershire. Alison will be exhibiting Pod I & Pod II which were carved from an acacia tree that fell in The Old Rectory Garden. The recycled forms will be exhibited meters from where the tree originally stood.
The Fresh Air Sculpture Show runs from the 11th June – 2nd July.
To see more sculptures from Alison’s scorched series make sure to get to FRESH AIR 2017 at Quenington, where Alison’s ‘Pods‘ will be on show from the 11th June – 2nd July.
Three of Alison’s sculptures from her scorched series will be on sale, alongside many other talented artists, at 33 Art Sale on Thursday 18th May, 18:00 – 21:00 at Bordean House, GU32 1EP.
33 Art Sale is a fundraising exhibition hosted by the Rural Refuge Network, who help Syrian refugees resettle into rural communities in Hampshire and Sussex. 33% of the sale price goes directly to the charity. The following three sculptures will be up for grabs!

The design and texture for The Scale Tree have been approved by Visual Arts Projects and the Chinese client so we are ready to get started on the full size sculpture. The Scale Tree is going to be 5m high with a diameter of 1.5m. Hand carved from unseasoned English oak sourced from Leconfield Estate, 20mins from Alison Crowther Studio.
Once completed, The Scale Tree will sit vertically inside the entrance lobby of a building in Shenzhen Bay. Two smaller sculptures, titled Scale Tree II and Scale Tree III, will be placed at the opposite side the entrance lobby. Phil, Gareth and Guy have been preparing the pieces in the workshop ready to start carving.
We received the 6m oak log weighing over 10 tonne, from Leconfield Estate, for The Scale Tree at the workshop today!
