Bird Stones
Mill Road Cemetery, Cambridge, 2014

R

Mill Road Cemetery is an old grade II listed cemetery that is actively used by the community as an important green space.
The work was inspired by the cemetery’s bird life. Each of the sculptures celebrates a species and their location found within the space, each work features bird poetry and a description of their calls. The aesthetic was given by designing the sculptures to function as perches, shelters, feeders and baths.
