Kay Latto

There is an autumn sculpture trail at RHS Harlow Carr Gardens, an added pleasure as you walk through the natural beauty of the gardens. I was particularly impressed by these pieces made by the Ripon-based artist, Kay Latto.

The one above is called 'The Space Between'. Unusually, it was designed to view from the front, the back being hollow. The bust below is 'Summer', one of four heads collectively entitled 'The Four Seasons'.

They are first sculpted in clay, kiln fired and then a mould is made and cast in bronze powder and resin. I think the faces have a wonderful strength and beauty.  If I won the lottery, I'd buy things like this!
