ABOUT THE ARTISTS AND ARTWORKS 2021 – All works were created over the past 18 months with support from Creative Odyssey CIC. Click on the artist’s name to view more of their work.
Mushroom Installation – Kally Davidson – With a small grant for materials Kally was able to experiment with UV reactive wools and UV light in her recent crocheted mushrooms for the installation in the cherry orchard.
Music Soundscape – Laura Cannell – All of the music at this year’s Lumiere has been created by Laura who draws inspiration from nature to create complex compositions for fiddle and recorder. She recorded deer barking and the dawn chorus at Raveningham to create the soundscape at the beginning of the Woodland Lumiere.
Pom Pom Tree – Created by Laura Cannell with additional creative support from Kate Ross, Liz Cannell and Bella Brown. Between them they created over 1000 pompoms for Laura’s installation Sing As The Crow Flies for Raveningham Sculpture Trail 2019. Laura has kindly loaned the pom poms to the Woodland Lumiere this year.
Poetry – Mal Cannell created the first poetry album of his selection of favourites during the first lockdown in April 2020. The album is available here and was funded by Creative Odyssey CIC with money from sales going back into Arts Projects at Raveningham.
Owls – Cindy Lee Wright The owls and hare were created during lockdown specifically for the woodland walk area from illustrations created by Cindy which has then been carved or laser cut to create these magical creatures.
Boat Lanterns -Lizzie Lawrence – Created by Lizzie at Raveningham during lockdown the boats create a bobbing, glowing harbour around the Ship of Light.
