Cirencester March Hare Festival




I'm thrilled to be part of another local Public Art project. The Cirencester March Hare Festival will see 25 large hares and many small ones, decorated by different local artists, gracing the streets, businesses and shop windows in Cirencester, from March to September 2014.
The beautiful hare sculpture has been created by sculptor Alan Dun whose iconic pig will be remembered by many from King Bladud's Pigs in Bath 2008. The decorated hare sculptures will be auctioned in Autumn 2014 and funds raised from the March Hare Festival will be used for the Green Hare projects, focused on improving the environment and engaging young people in Cirencester in association with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.




My design 'Harebelle' has been sponsored by The Twelve Bells and little Harebelle, who stands around 15" tall can already be spotted at the Pub and Restaurant on Lewis Lane, Cirencester. The 5' version will be arriving in the spring!

I hope to be able to paint more small hares for the project and these are some of my designs.
