Our 20th anniversary exhibition
The exhibition showcasesd 20 large sculptures which create an installation, inspired by the coastline and environment of Dorset. The sculptures are based around the idea, of the seed Janna planted 20 years ago when 15 Days In Clay was set up.
The sculptures are large figures with seed/flower heads, standing on rock, tree or meadow bases. We have asked the artists to come up with thoughts and feelings important to them, these are carved into the work for the audience to read, sowing seeds of thought.
Some of the sculptures are still available to own, please call Janna Edwards for details.

Poetry by the artists and John Daniels
My flowers smell good People say
I’m waiting for the bees To come to the flowers
To pollinate each one I will make seeds
Then wait for the birds To come,
to take My seeds to a new home
Julie Spencer artist at 15 Days and poet John Daniels
Like the seeds of the fields
of the woodlands and gardens
we have grown
these twenty years our harvest
is honoured by your presence
take the seeds of ourcollective endeavours
in your hearts with our blessing.
By John Daniels poet 2023
