This two stage project was initially an art commission to make an intervention in the ancient woodlands that were originally part of the estate of the now closed Claybury Asylum, a groundbreaking psychiatric hospital.
The resulting work, a spiral stair that led up the side of a 100 year old tree, was considered so successful, that a further five small scale interventions were commissioned as a trail from the new children’s play space through the woods.
These interventions were inserted into living and dead trees and included a huge glass eye, a Claude glass, a ceramic font and a bronze door knocker.
