x Rachel Ducker's Landmark Installation in Henley-on-Thames x

A life size sculpture by Rachel Ducker has been installed at a landmark roundabout at the entrance to Henley-on-Thames.
Landscape designer Paul Terroni won a competition run by Henley in Bloom to redesign the roundabout, which is sponsored by the Henley Standard. The idea is to show Henley as a “gateway to a healthy lifestyle” and create a vibrant welcome to the town.
The roundabout design features Rachel’s sculpture, depicting a woman leaping out of water, surrounded by flower beds of Olympic-style interlocking rings planted in bright colours.

Henley town councillor Elizabeth Hodgkin said "The roundabout has exceeded my expectations and Rachel is a genius in how she makes the movement feel real."
Rachel Ducker will be showcasing her work at ‘Art in the Garden’ at the Big Plant Nursery in Twyford as part of the popular Henley Arts Trail during 2nd, 3rd and 4th May 2015.  The first May Bank Holiday weekend is a perfect time to visit for inspiration and ideas on designing your outdoor space so 'Save the Date': 2nd - 4th May 2015.  The Big Plant Nursery is venue 17 on the HENLEY ARTS TRAIL MAP 2015
