Private Commission

Simon has won a commission for a new building at Prior’s Court School: Bradbury Hall. This involves taking bronze casts of the bark from many of the mature specimen trees that surround the school and nickle plating them. As the school is for the severely autistic child, these simply sensual reliefs of familiar tree barks will be a welcome addition to the facade of Bradbury Hall, creating and sense of unity across the entire school grounds. They also continue Simon’s fascination with surfaces from the natural world. Installed: February 2011.
