Trevor Leat - wicker and willow sculpture




Trevor Leat's sculptural work for gardens and interiors are sometimes of figures in flowing tai chi/yoga positions with muscles flexed in movement. The willow is woven over a steel armature and this process brings strength and durability to the sculptures.

He also makes much larger scale figurative work with his friend and artist Alex Rigg. They have worked together on various festival and performance events for over 10 years and their dynamic burning sculptures excite and captivate thousands of onlookers in the U.K and beyond

Their company, 'leatrigg', has become well known for its dramatic and beautiful burning figures at Scotland's 'Wickerman Festival' and at the Edinburgh Hogmanay Procession.

Often combined with pyrotechniques, there is a sense of ritual as the10m high sculptures are set on fire and then spectacularly burnt.
