The Owl, the Hare and the Spinning Wheel
A green burial memorial for a woman who was an enthusiastic spinner of wool, and whose favourite animal was the hare, and the barn owl her favourite bird. Completed in July 2020 but, due to Covid-19 intervening, not installed by her family until October 2021.

This is the third memorial I have made for a green burial site and the first three dimensional sculpture. The first two were posts set beside the grave as markers supporting freshly planted trees. This one can can be found at the North Weald Green Burial Ground in Epping Forest.
