Exhibition in Norfolk this summer.
I’ve been checking out a site for a show i’ve been invited to participate in in Cley on Sea in North Norfolk, This June, its a wonderful windswept location, reedbeds and shingle beech.

This is the figure i’m going to bury up to his thighs, leaning to the right askew..
He’s a reworked figure new head, new feet and more stuff hanging on him, he’s now called ‘Sticks & Stones’.
