Bronze, Silver, Goldsworthy!

Year 2 have been reasearching the famous sculptor Andy Goldsworthy and writing non-chronological reports about him. We have been fascinated by his use of natural materials including stone, clay, sand, wood, leaves and ice. We found that a black hole theme was appearing in many of his sculptures. This was inspired by a trip to the beach when some sand collapsed and a black hole appeared in the sand. The black was so beautiful that Andy Goldsworthy recreated this hole in many of his sculptures. Many of the sculptures he creates are temporary as they may be washed or blown away, so he takes photographs of each one to remember them.

Year 2 have created their own sculptures inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy. We took photographs to remember our creative pieces before we dismantled them.

Art in Nature

Today in year 2 we studied and wrote about the artwork of Andrew Goldsworthy.

He creates sculptures in the outside environment using mediums such as ice, twigs,

leaves, petals, sand and even rain!


This afternoon we created our own natural sculptures in a similar style.

We had to be very patient as sometimes our masterpieces moved or even collapsed!

However in true Andy Goldsworthy style we enjoyed the changes this made as the

artwork is not intended to last forever….!
