Gardens

In the Summer of 2020 I received an a-n The Artists Information Company and Arts Council England bursary to develop outdoor sculpture. Thanks to this bursary, I have developed a whole new collection of sculptures. I make the complete sculptures myself, including welding the metal for the frames!

Artist Kathryn Webley with 3 of her outdoor sculptures. Sculptures are glass discs in black metal frames.

These three sculptures are available for purchase and a full set of images and details are given below.
