Ashlands Water Serpent

After two years of planning we have finally started constructing this giant log twisting snake in Milton Keynes. I am working again with Second Nature – Drew, Will and Ben and we are staying in the land of many roundabouts during the week.  The work is designed as a community project and is the largest work in Milton Keynes to date. It is both sculpture and play object for kids plus a place to picnic and hang out in what is a relatively wild piece of land. It may also be the cornerstone of future community projects on the land to make the environment more stimulating and green with more habitat for other species.

After two weeks work we are roughly half way, but are awaiting the second delivery of logs, delayed because of bad weather.
