£75 per person

Dotted around our intimately beautiful estate are 53 sculptures created by more than 20 sculptors from around the country. Each stands proud and resolute, happily positioned amongst their surroundings to provide guests with a unique experience to appreciate not just the natural beauty of our grounds, but also of these strikingly poignant and beautiful constructions.

The figurative bronze sculptures included in our Sculpture Trail are created by Carol Peace. We are delighted to host this Meet The Artist event with Carol.

Carol’s sculptures are made in clay, which like charcoal is quick to make marks with, once finished it is cast into bronze, those fluid marks of the making are then fixed forever.

Carol Peace Bio

Founder of the Bristol Drawing School, Carol Peace is a figurative sculptor who could not work without drawing. The process of drawing, that intuitive response, is what she aims for in her work.

“It’s all about trying to see, drawing enables that.”

In 1992, she graduated from Winchester School of Art and set up studio in the Bristol Sculpture Shed, which would later become Spike Island, she moved to Paintworks in 2004.

Her intensely personal work is shown and collected all over the UK, Europe, the Far East and United States. Her large-scale work is permanently on show at Glyndebourne and at the Dorchester’s country house hotel in Ascot.

“The work is about everyday life, in its minutia, the sheer fantastic-ness of it all.”

“Walking into Carol Peace’s studio feels like arriving at a party in mid-flow. There seems to be people everywhere – some huddled close together and whispering, others striking a pose at various points around the room. Carol’s creations have a poise all of their own – elegant and caressing, they weave around each other like a room of bronze and resin lovers. “
