Fiona co-founded the Scraptors group with Paul Boswell, Rachel McLeay and Anthony Wilson
The brief from Stourhead National Trust was to encourage visitors to venture and explore the estate beyond the world famous gardens round the lake, referring to the history and landscape. The sculptures, made from a variety of salvaged and recycled materials, explored themes connected with Stourhead - its history, wildlife, classical mythology of sculptures in the garden and buildings that dot the landscape.
The trail extended the fantasy and whimsy of the lakeside into the woods, creating a vibrant spectacle, a magical sense of ‘otherworldliness’ – appealing to both children and adults. Visitors to Stourhead enjoyed discovering the work in surprising places – sited in the water, on ground level and amongst the trees at different heights and on different scales.
