Tim Stead (1952-2000), wood. Tm Stead’s first commission was the interior of the Cafe Gandolfi (where we will eat tonight, photo later). He later conceived the Axes for Trees project, sculpting a wooden axe head for each day of 1986. He raised money to contribute to the purchase of Wooplaw Community Woodlands in the Borders, which was the first community woodland in Scotland.
This work was commissioned by GoMA; he called it “a womb with a view”. After receiving the commission he said that “Creativity is as much part of biodiversity as the rainforest. Positive people are important.”
