Mighty Oaks, Coiled Clay


Mark Frith's graphite illustrations of ancient oaks from around the UK offer a glimpse into the future of the trees at the Arboretum. The oaks featured, each of which has stood for hundreds of years, have grown from youthful saplings into ancient structures with an enduring beauty and power.

Charlotte Barker's ceramic vessels, made from coils and slabs of clay, rest on low oak structures. Constructed from natural materials and using age-old processes, Barker's contemporary sculptures are shaped from materials which are at the heart of Staffordshire and the Arboretum.
