THE DRAGON BENCH
Year of production: 2016
Location: Burgess Park, London, SE5 7QH
Materials: Tree of Heaven - Carved where it fell
The Dragon Bench was commissioned by Southwark Council as part of the regeneration of Burgess Park. It is carved from a large Tree of Heaven that died and had to be taken down for safety reasons.It was carved entirely on-site during June and July 2016. My aim was to re-purpose the tree and make something useful and entertaining for all the people of the park.
