As I developed the body of work that became “A Tale of Two Sketchbooks”, I carved three stone sculptures inspired by the 18th Century, the time of Rievaulx Terraces’s construction.
These three Sheep sculptures were exhibited at the 2018 Art Show at the Great Yorkshire Show, Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
