“Full Circle” – A major exhibition

From Saturday 14th October to Sunday 22nd October I will be holding a major exhibition.  It will be here at Lavenham Hall with a preview on Friday 13th October.    As this is expected to be my last major show I am determined to make it a worthy summary of everything I have learned about my art.  It will include some 18 new sculptures and a similar number of new drawings.    Invitations with an online catalogue will be sent out to my mailing list about a month before and images of the new work will be posted on Instagram after that – @lavenham_hall_gallery 

Great Dane by Kate Denton

Great Dane Commission

This commission for a life sized Great Dane was installed in March.    This portrait was special to me as I had a much-loved Great Dane myself back in my 20’s.   He is now installed on a hill overlooking and guarding his owners’ house. I am especially pleased with the lovely blue / grey patina.

Wildflower Globe Commission

This lattice globe commission was for a slightly larger globe with a diameter of 80cm rather than 60cm I normally use (which seems like a small change but doubles the surface area). This globe was designed for a meadow where, in summer, it will rise above a swathe of native wild flowers. The modelling includes bronze foxgloves, poppies, cow parsley and a wide range of other wild flowers as well as dragonflies, bees, butterflies and ladybirds.
