I love my baby' cos she does good sculptures……………….

…….with apologies to " The Rezillos" ( still one of my all time favourite bands) but it is so appropriate for the sculptures I saw this week at the Cass Sculpture Foundation, by Ellis O"Connell.  Fantastic work, really organic shapes.  As they are made of carbon fibre and not steel or stone, they are warm to the touch, which is really surprising in work of this scale.








This was such a rewarding place to visit, and there were only about 6 other people there yesterday - admittedly, it was so cold that I couldn't eventually take any more photos as my hands were so stiff.  About 1.5h drive from London, and I took about 2h to view all the sculptures.  It was the culmination of a complete overload of art this week, that I will blog about later once I've absorbed it all.  This visit was combined with a trip to Petworth - art of complete contrast and incredible to think it was all owned by one family.


  1. Oh my goodness, they are amazing. I've never heard of this place, but really want to go now. Right now. But the car is at the menders... grr, may be next week... Thanks for the heads up. x

  2. Astonishing lovely - and set off brilliantly by the setting. Thanks for letting me know about them!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
