About the Hare

For my hare design I wanted to make my hare represent the Cotswold’s sports. I decided to design my hare into a cricket player. Cricket is a very old and traditional sport played in the Cotswold’s by many. The hares that I have already seen in the local area reminded me of a Wicket Keepers stance, which helped me to decide on my theme.

For my hare design I wanted to make my hare represent the Cotswold’s sports. I decided to design my hare into a cricket player. Cricket is a very old and traditional sport played in the Cotswold’s by many. The hares that I have already seen in the local area reminded me of a Wicket Keepers stance, which helped me to decide on my theme. I had a few attempts designing my final piece and I have kept it quite traditional and simple with the typical knitted cricket jumper and knee pads.

When I was younger I went to a little primary school in Hatherop. The school had a total number of 82 students which made all of the age groups mix together. My primary school would normally go on field trips to forests and sculpture shows which I thoroughly enjoyed. When I was in the forest I saw loads of wildlife and that’s what got me into the arts. My Uncle is an artist and I love to look at his work and all of the paintings he has done. For my GCSE’s I have chosen Art as one of my subjects and I am really enjoying it. For the past two studies that we have done we have been looking at the work of the land artist, Andy Goldsworthy and the ceramic artist, Kate Malone. They are both amazing artists and use an element of nature within their work which makes me like it so much. I inspire to work like they do through my own art pieces.
