Elements of Nature sculpture exhibition

Enjoy the elegant, flowing forms of a collection of works by Somerset-based sculptor Ian Marlow, set amid the glorious autumn colours of The Courts Garden. The sculptures, created in stainless steel are inspired by nature and natural forms.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The bold freshness in Ian's use of stainless steel, coupled with the texturing he adds to the surface creates subtle shades of light that alter as you move around the sculptures, shifting the colours from brightest silver to darkest grey and focussing the eye on the elegant forms.

There is a natural fluidity to his sculptures which allows them to sit comfortably in both traditional and contemporary settings.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
