The Hockney Trees

The Hockney Trees, which can be found outside the Sixth Form Centre, were a joint creation, made by 2012’s Years 1, 2 and 3. Each pupil hand-made their ceramic bead from stoneware clay and decorated them by carving in, moulding on and decorating with under-glaze colours inspired by the paintings and works of David Hockney and his exhibition The Bigger Picture in 2012.

 

Lucy Joines, Teacher of Art, said: “It has taken a while to organise and put up the sculpture in the open area of the Sixth Form Centre, which follows the way to the Heseltine Gallery, but the wait has been worth it! Thank you to all the maintenance team who were a huge part of putting up the sculpture, as well as our technician Russell O’Connor and of course thank you to all of the pupils that created this fantastic sculpture.”
