Mountains We Made

CHARLIE WHINNEY

2017

This new piece of artwork, entitled ‘Mountains We Made’ by Cumbria-based artist Charlie Whinney, has been specially commissioned by The Forestry Commission England, Lakes Culture and Lakes Alive in response to the new World Heritage inscription for the Lake District National Park.  The designation was for its ‘cultural landscape’. 

Mountains We Made is created from a series of ten steam bent sections of wood. The oak for the sculpture has been sustainably sourced from Grizedale Forest in the Lake District.  The sculpture is designed for people to walk along. The wooden sections are inspired by and echo the forms ofthe ten highest peaks in the Lake District. Embedded with words that are taken from Lake District maps, viewers are encourage to follow the pathway through this new cultural landscape. Mountains We Made is currently touring to a number of venues and arts events including Brockhole, Lakes Alive and will be returning to Grizedale to become part of the permanent collection in January 2018.
