Belvoir "3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw" Sculpture Trail
Sculpture Symposium 2011
Donnas Peterson "Luciana"
Ceramic artist Donnas Peterson was an invited guest artist at a sculpture symposium in the UK which took place during the Spring of 2011 in Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir.
Mentored by sculptor Laury Dizengremel who hosted the event, Donnas created "Luciana" (coming to the light) - a direct concrete sculpture over recycled wire mesh and rebar armature. Located in a hollow along the Grantham Canal, the sculpture is larger than lifesize and emerges from the ground in the surrounding undergrowth.

Donnas said about her experience: "This is a dream come true, making a public sculpture of this size for the very first time, and in a different material, using a technique new to me."
She was a fantastic asset to the symposium team, taking on a whole host of responsibilities and helping from dawn until late at night, every day, for the entire duration. Thank you Donnas!
The 3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw Sculpture Trail is an artist-led initiative by sculptor Laury Dizengremel, who garnered the support of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland at Belvoir Castle and received for the project a major donation from Christie's auction house (European office).
