This photo is of the amazing font at Salisbury Cathedral, designed by William Pye
Back in February, I took Miss E on a ‘school trip’, mainly to see the exhibition of Sophie Ryder wire sculptures,
but the day held so much more….
Miss E immediately engaged with the huge beings
in both a thoughtful and playful way
…..talking about how they might have been made and looking for the baby hare
She was fascinated by the quirky things she found in the sculptures
and started making a collection of photos of ‘unusual things’.
Totally unprompted by me, she responded to many of the sculptures by adopting the same poses and then interacting with them … I could see she was not only seeing the forms, she was feeling them in her body and becoming part of them.
She danced with the dancing hares…
and stood strong under the ‘clasped hands’. This structure was originally over the path but had to be moved as people were bumping into it whilst walking, heads down, texting on their mobile phones!
Inside the cathedral Miss E talked about the scale of the huge sculptures and marvelled at the scale of the cathedral, again wondering about how it had been constructed,
noticing the richness of its history and the patterns and shapes.
Taking time for personal REFLECTION
We had such an enriching day together, and only just made it back in time for Miss E to get to her gymnastics class.
