Sphere by the Thames - Public Art

Sphere by the Thames - Public Art‘Sphere by the Thames’ May 2015 , Cholsey & Wallingford, South Oxfordshire

Public Art Sculpture

Commissioned by Thomas Homes Developments Ltd

A landmark redevelopment in rural Oxfordshire formed a beautiful setting for one of Victoria Westaway’s abstract sculptures. Cholsey Meadows is set within over 100 acres of Registered Park and Garden and has access to over a mile-long stretch of the River Thames.

Working with the residents of this new development; Victoria created a series of sculptural designs and experiments for this public art commission which reflected the natural beauty of the location. The chosen work ‘Sphere by the Thames’ was created in response to the harvest mouse and water vole habitats along the river bank and neighbouring fields around Cholsey Marsh.

The sphere was installed by Victoria and her team in May 2015.

This piece of natural Public Art was designed to evolve over time as live willow was planted within the core of the piece. It offers the residents the chance to explore the wilder parts of the development and weave the new willow stems into the sphere.
