Celebrating local history and culture
As part of planning permission for the development, our South Midlands team were required to commission four decorative benches that were each designed to reflect the history and culture of the local area.
The team reviewed several proposals from artists in the area but chose to work with Peter after being impressed by his specialty - using a chainsaw to carve and produce artistic sculptors. Once on board, Peter held a ‘meet the artist’ session at Orchard Chase to interact with the community and encourage their input in the designs. He also gave a demonstration on how chainsaw carvings are made.
