‘Crucible’ – sculpture exhibition…

What an impressive collection of artworks!

I’d heard some mixed reviews and the BBC Local website was less than inspiring, but the real thing is very strong. Check the following links for further info.

The range of styles and materials is amazing and i’ve never seen a collection like this before, certainly not on this scale, with over 75 artworks by 45 artists, spread over the whole cathedral and grounds.

The atmosphere inside the cathedral makes for an amazing background for the artworks. There’s even a slowly spinning piece hung above the main hall and a startling Jesus figure which looks like something out of Hell Raiser (the film).

I loved the little figures set in many of the stone alcoves and plinths scattered around the cathedral. Well worth a look.
