Private View & Supper Club

Price: £28

Britain’s greatest living stone sculptor Emily Young’s largest bronze casting of ‘The Sun King Dreams of Peace’ at Glove Factory Studios.

We are delighted to invite you to an evening viewing of Emily Young’s ‘The Sun King Dreams of Peace’ (Bronze) sculpture, followed by a light Spring supper at Wild Herb at The Field Kitchen.

The Sun King Dreams of Peace, the largest bronze cast by Emily Young to date, is in the last stages of fabrication at Wolf and Stone Foundry in Dorset by Anthony Stone. Emily and Anthony are working closely on the finish of this monumental sculpture, using heat and chemical patination techniques to create colour and variation which speaks some of the same language of the stone original whilst echoing Emily’s interest in the age and history of materials.

The installation of The Sun King Dreams of Peace (Bronze) at Glove Factory Studios will be the first time a large bronze by Emily Young has been displayed anywhere in the world.

Join us for a relaxed evening, beginning in the courtyard with a welcome drink and nibbles, before walking out to admire Emily Young’s sculpture in the landscape then returning to the canopy to enjoy a delicious Spring supper prepared by the talented team at Wild Herb at The Field Kitchen.
