Photographer's Note

Contrasting styles and times.

Another visit to Buckland Abbey, and more examples of the work of Andrew Logan.
This lady dressed in Elizabethan costume was our guide around the Abbey.
(There is a group of very clever people based at Buckland who meet regularly to make costumes such as this.)
The sculpture is the ornamental Elements throne; created for the 2004 Alternative Miss World Contest, which was held at The Hippodrome in Leicester Square, London.
The show was dedicated to Andrew's parents - both of who were regular judges of the competition. The winner was Miss Secret Sounds of Sunbird Rising, and the throne design was based on that of the sun.

Logan started creating thrones in the mid 80's to celebrate the ceremony of royalty.

There are actually 4 seats to this throne,one for the winner, faced in gold, then silver for the runner up, bronze for third and a final seat for the competition presenter.

Two closer views in the workshop.

Thanks for looking.
