Tudor Giants

Hampton Court Palace Tudor figures ready for delivery

These 9ft tall willow figures were commissioned by Hampton Court Palace as part of their celebrations of the 500th Anniversary of The Field of Cloth of Gold when King Henry VIII met France’s King Francois. The figures are inspired by characters depicted on the famous Field of Cloth of Gold painting which hangs in the palace.

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!
