Plain Paper Plane is one of Spofforth’s public commissions and is on permanent display in Biggleswade in Bedfordshire. He won a National competition against stiff opposition from many of the country’s top public artists. The sculpture tells a story of a child flying a paper airplane. The first element shows the child throwing the plane, in the next the child watches as the plane glides through the air, the last element shows the plane being picked up from the ground. You can view the others on his website here.
The sculpture is cast in bronze and was sculpted by the artist at his studio just outside Chester. The sculpture features five different colour patinas: light brown, dark brown, verdigris, black and white.
Plain Paper Plane is in a limited edition of ten only.
