The Forest and the Forester

Graham’s sculptural work was launched at Grizedale Live in 2002, entitled ‘The Forest and the Forester (After Maeterlinck)’. The work comprises of a planting of 12 Scots pine within special enclosures, it can be found close to Lawson Park at Map Ref. E11. The sculpture has an accompanying play of the same title, which is set at the site of the sculpture. The site overlooks Coniston Water where Donald Campbell died in 1967 on board the Bluebird. The script is based on the Forest Scene from Maurice Maeterlinck’s play 'The Blue Bird'. Accompanying the planting of the trees was this book (also called The Forest and the Forester (After Maeterlinck)), in which Graham reproduced the scene in question.
