This piece was commissioned for a new art gallery in Reading on the top floor of the public library. It is called HolyBrook after the stream that now runs mostly underground through the town centre. The bench is designed to look like a bridge and is made of English Ash. It was completed at the end of December and is likely to be may last commission in my Bramley workshop. As such it is poignant for me and I am delighted that it should be a piece for a public space for the town in which we have lived for many years.
