2011 Symposium

Four sculptors have been selected to produce permanent sculpture pieces from wood to be located in the public woodland in the Cremorne Gardens adjacent to the Mere at Ellesmere. The ESI has worked closely with the Shropshire Council Mere Management team and Conservation Officers to ensure public safety and care of the habitat.
The pieces are to add to the existing Sculpture Trail in the landscape around the town. The sculptures are made in direct response to the environment into which they are placed - a continuing unique theme of the Ellesmere Sculpture Trail.
 
The four pieces are:
