The Apple Story Seat was inspired by the popular children’s story ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. The Seat was part of a New Garden Project at Charles Kingsley’s Primary School, Eversley in Hampshire. Carved from a huge block of Oak and measuring 1m50 across, it shows the core and pips inside the Apple together with a giant caterpillar that has just taken a bite out of the leaf.



Three carved Oak slabs 2m60 tall depict the children’s drawings of ‘cycles’ relating to the science curriculum, i.e.

Chestnut Flowers to Conkers
Seeds to Plants
The Water Cycle
Caterpillar to Butterfly
Frogspawn to Frogs
And Space Travel.




A Musical Play Structure, with tuned Mahogany Keys strung in an Oak Frame and standing 2 metres tall.
