Tudor Woman, Telford

Philip Bews Diane Gorvin
Sculpture for public sites


Tudor Woman

Commissioned by Telford Development Corporation. First sited in Apley Castle Park and then resited to Cherry Garden, Telford

Loosley based on a drawing by Hans Holbien the Younger, the sculpture is a double sided clay relief cast in glass reinforced ciment fondue, with internal metal armature and fixings.

She represents a white lady ghost seen in Apley Castle's grounds - the relief looks 3 dimensional when approached directly from the front, or from the back but distorts and becomes thinner viewed from the side. The winding path she was placed on allowed for a changing view of the work.

She was removed from the site and given a new home in Cherry Garden after a storm brought down trees that narrowly missed her.
