David Nash: Black Mound

David Nash created two new works made December 2013 to overlook the Park’s historic lakes.

Black Mound, which overlooks the Park’s historic lakes and references the natural cycle of wood, was created by Nash in December 2013. The work is made from coal and oak charred black, through carefully controlled burning.

With wood sculpture one tends to see ‘wood’, a warm familiar material, before reading the form: wood first, form second. Charring radically changes this experience. The surface is transformed from a vegetable to a mineral – carbon – and one sees the form before the material.”
