Design, Fabrication, Installation

Fabrication and installation of a major sculpture series, Gwelen, by Emma Smith.

Gwelen is a site-specific artwork for Mount’s Bay by award winning artist Emma Smith and residents of West Penwith, Cornwall. The work consists of 85 sculptures installed along the Penzance-Marazion coastal path.

Plane Structure worked with Emma Smith to fabricate and install the sculpture series. Each work is carved with markings that hint to the geology over which they look. The works are made of wood that reflects the species from the forest and they are treated with a finish that petrifies the wood.

Gwelen was commissioned by Newlyn Art Gallery + The Exchange and Cornwall Council.
