A visit to Berrington Hall 7

War and pieces by Bouke de Vries. In the dining room at Berrington is the Arts Council award winning ceramic sculpture by Bouke de Vries. Inspired by extravagant sugar sculpture which used to be pride and place on wealthy dining tables during the seventeenth century. The piece takes the form of a war banquet given on the eve of battle. This sculpture depicts an element of Admiral Rodney's royal command and his part in the Berrington story.

I thought it may have been the night after a Greek wedding.
Bill Phillips: Perhaps that is where they got the bits from Alan

The intention of this ceramic sculpture is very visible. A very interesting artwork.
Bill Phillips: It was difficult to get a decent picture as it was very dark in the room but hopefully this gives an idea

Smashing isn't it, or rather smashed..
Bill Phillips: I would have enjoyed helping to smash the china
A friend of mine did a huge installation made with broken china. I have been looking for it online but cannot find it. Love this one you are showing.
Bill Phillips: This one has been doing a tour of various National Trust Properties
A lot of crockery there Bill.
Bill Phillips: A whole cupboard full Larry
That is really something else!!
Bill Phillips: The detail was amazing. I was unable to do it justice
