Nigel Ross - Lime Tree Sculpture

Nigel Ross

Lime Tree Sculpture


Lime wood


Location: Garden below Devonshire House, Streatham Campus
Sculpted in situ, this seat and table is made from the trunk of one of the trees cleared as part of the building works for the Forum.

The sculptor Nigel Ross has used the natural form of the wood to its full potential to create an intriguing and accessible seat, which are reminiscent of two basking crocodiles.  

A carved table accompanies the seat, so that people can sit on the sculpted seat and enjoy their surroundings with a picnic.

This sculpture was created in late 2010 when snow lay on the ground.

Nigel Ross lives and works in Scotland, working with fallen trees and creating immense wooden sculptures. He has family links with Exeter.
