Garbadale Chandelier


This chandelier has been hidden away in Will's sketchbook in many different guises for 15 years or so! It's inspired and named after the Ian Banks novel 'The Steep Approach To Garbadale'; in particular the passage 'It's the sacrificial anode, the mousetrap; where all the untidiness gets sucked away to. In the bin, it's all chaos and no ordering is needed, in fact any attempt to organise it misunderstands it's function'. This quote inspired the randomness and higgledy-piggledy nature of the chandelier; due to it being the incarnation of many different ideas all put together. After being displayed at the Devon Guild in Bovey Tracey, it's now been placed in our Langport Gallery.
