This piece was made from designs and sketches I gathered when creating the Buckinghamshire Clock in the County Museum, Aylesbury, installed 2000. The top element, carved from sycamore, is a pyramid of cylindrical hay/straw bales, the lower element, carved in ash, comprises a swan, the county mascot, standing above a bit of the half-timbered wall of Woburn Sands Railway Station. Below this the piece ends with a tail of watercress, referencing the chalk streams of the Chilterns.
