La Cloche Perdue 2013
Ht.7m x dia.1.5m
Painted wood branches in colours of fire, bronze painted cane.

Commissioned by Lez'Arts en Adret for 'Fantastique' the theme of Sentier Artistique Hautecour 2013, Savoie, France. The sculpture illustrates the moment when the bell melted into the ground.

'La légende de la Cloche Perdue' by Lorna Green

Once upon a time a long time ago in the village of Hautecourt a very strange event happened. One dark and foggy night a large bell suddenly appeared in the wood. It seemed to come from the sky and the villagers could not understand how it appeared and where it had come from. For several days they pondered over its existence and soon made plans to install it in the church tower. Arrangements were made to move it but the night before this was due to happen — there came a great storm, wind, rain, thunder and lightening, more violent and frightening than anyone had seen or experienced before. Suddenly, there came from the sky, in the biggest flash of lightening ever seen, a thunderbolt, which set fire to the trees around the bell. In the intense heat of the fire the bell became molten and gradually disappeared into the ground. The villagers watched the great fire with fear and trembling as the bell which arrived from the sky slowly melted into the earth.. No trace of the bell was ever found — no one knew where it came from and no one knows where it went to, but maybe it returned to the depths of the earth where the copper was originally mined? The mystery of the lost bell may never be resolved.

'Spring, Summer and Autumn'. 1, 2 and 3. 2008

Commissioned by Cheshire County Council for 'Something Beautiful' in Tatton Park, Knutsford for 'Cheshire's Year of Gardens 2008'

The installations are about the life cycle of the deer in the park using fallen branches to represent antlers, painted in the colours of leaves from the yellows of early spring, the greens of summer to the rich tones of autumn - birth to death of both deer and leaves.

Individual tableaux within the three 'herds' illustrate their habits - the frequent violent relationships between the males and females, the docility of the older ones, the battles between the stags and the bucks, the births and deaths, as well as the groups of young ones, male and female, who huddle together for protection and to learn from their elders.
