The May Ball Committee at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge contacted me to commission a 12 foot tall sculpture of winged Ariel from The Tempest.

Challenges included how to transport such a large sculpture in my Landrover, the need to hide the sculpture in a small store room until the day of the Ball and the necessity of the students themselves doing the final assembly of the separate parts along with the installation.

I think we managed it admirably!

Caroline Gregson
Willow Sculpture Artist

I have loved and been inspired by the natural world since I was a child and the ability to work as a Willow Artist and make willow sculptures representing the essence of animals, birds and other living forms brings me great pleasure. I love to represent movement and vitality in my work. My willow sculptures appear to have just paused in their setting before they are ready to move on. One of the nicest things anyone has said about my animal sculptures is that you can always see where they are looking!
