The 'Moon Seat’ at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Stratford-upon-avon.



A Bitterly cold installation last week just before the snow fell, warmed only by the kind comments of the visitors and staff, oh, and not forgetting the (very) deep hand dug foundation which helped keep the cold at bay.


The Sculpture is part of the Shakespeare Trusts celebration of William's Words that have music as part of their theme.

Inspired from The Merchant of Venice:

‘How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!
Here will we sit and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears: soft stillness and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony.’

The Moon Seat is woven with flanders willow around a steel frame. The seat is seasoned oak sourced locally and the inner profile is created using a marine fabric stretched in panels.



With Anne Hathaway’s cottage drawing romantics from all over the world, I wonder if we will have any marriage proposals on this seat? - I like to think so.
