About the Ebook
During 2010/11 artist Rachel Carter was commissioned to create a sculpture for her home town of Heanor, Derbyshire. This book charts the research and development of the idea process and the creation of the new sculpture.
Rachel Carter creates sculptural pieces for the garden/landscape using mild steel and woven willow. Trained at The University of Derby in 3D Sustainable Design, she mixes her love of art and design, with her passion for the environment. Inspiration for her work comes from the plants within her own garden and trips to botanical gardens and the English countryside. Nature creates beautiful fluid shapes and this finds its way into the shapes that she creates with willow and mild steel. Rachel's studio is based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire with five other designer/makers to create the collective group 'Shed 2 Studios.'
