Something lurking in the woods!
I mentioned the sculptures at Tatton Park in an earlier post and to be honest I wasnt that impressed but there was one ‘sculpture’ that my eldest son and I loved. This woodmans hut for want of a better name was stunning.
It has such an organic shape to start with and the construction is amazing! Its made out of wooden palings and assembled over a complex wooden structure. But strangely you will see that light is provided via a plastic dome on the top!
Once you go inside you realise just how large it is, you could probably sit 15 easily. There is also a wood burning stove and a rocking chair. I suspect it is intended as a sort of hide as there are triangluar windows all round which give views out across the lake.
The light streaming in through the windows even on an overcast day was amazing and give the building a special atmosphere.
We loved the way it sat in the landscape, it really didnt jar as so many sculptures do and I can imagine with a little aging it will seem like it has been there for years. My son said it reminded him of old Mother Hubbard’s house! Being an apprentice joiner and seriously into wooden things he took the majority of these photos and I think has dreams of creating a similar building in the future.
