Giant seed pod eats famous gardener’s face
I called in on the last day of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Prize exhibition. Here is a quick pen sketch on brown packing paper, finished at home with conte crayon, of a ceramic by Jasmina Ajzenkol. I was attracted by its oblate spheroid (flattened like the Earth) shape rising to two points like jaws. Behind is a bronze bust of Lancelot “Capability” Brown, eighteenth century landscape gardener, by Robert Page.
The trees are in the nearby St Paul’s churchyard, a place I have illustrated several times previously, with links here, here and here.
