The Ashbocking Series for Linley
Sharing images here from the ‘medley’ collections created for Linley with produce form Ashbocking House in Suffolk. Each of these curated sets contain unique casts of pears and apples and figs grown at the house, presented on marble plinths. Crispin apples, Black Worcester pears, Turkey Brown Figs amongst other varieties. My earlier journal entry speaks a little about the work being done to restore Ashbocking. I thought I'd show the results of my visits here!
Images show below - Ashbocking Medley II, 2022 ; Three Crispin Apples with baby Turks Figs (Medley I), Set of Five, 2022 ; Williams' bon chrétien and Black Worcester Pears, Set of Four, 2022.
These works are also signed using a punch stamp after casting - a new addition to works and something I know people have been asking for. Where I can’t fit this tiny signature mark, I can and do send a signed note on request. It can be a little trick fitting it onto some objects!
