By Russell Jakubowski
In developing this piece, sculptor Russell Jakubowski was inspired by the geology of the Greensand Way and the physical shape of the landscape at Reynards Hill. His innovative Contour bench is made up of many layers of recycled material. It presents a dynamic form in response to the result of a great cycle of marine sedimentation that lasted until the end of the cretaceous period when the land lay beneath water. The layers of sedimentation, contours of the land and the visible forms and cycles of nature inspired this design.
