Plant Head, Norton Priory Museum

Philip Bews Diane Gorvin
Sculpture for public sites


Plant Head

Norton Priory Museum and Gardens, Runcorn, Cheshire. Commissioned by Norton Priory Museum Trust. Cheshire County Council, ICI, Merseyside Arts and Warrington and Runcorn Development Corporation contributed to the costs.

Plant Head was modelled in clay and cast into glass reinforced concrete and painted with Acrylic.

The 132cm high sculpture is sited on a bank overlooking the little stream that runs through the grounds.

It is designed to draw people further into the lovely gardens of the Museum. Its position on a circular path route means it has a different aspect depending on the approach, from one direction the face is on view, and from the other it looks to be an abstracted plant form, so when one looks around the work the face comes as a surprise.
