THE work of a popular sculptor is being exhibited. For the next five weeks, Paul Bainbridge, of Sandon, will display his work in the gallery at Wimpole Hall.
It will show a range of new and exclusive work, including two large outdoor sculptures, En Aval and The Throne.
Mr Bainbridge, 63, said: "There are more than 30 sculptures and drawings on display and there really is something for everyone.
"I'm particularly proud of the outdoor sculptures which have been a pleasure to work on.
"En Aval (which is French for down river) is a piece that has been inspired by the River Stort in Bishop's Stortford.
"The Throne, which is probably my favourite piece, was designed to represent a throne for the Greek God Poseidon. It's something that I'm particularly proud of - monumentally, it is fantastic.

"I also have a number of abstract works and some figure sculptures that I think people will like. They will also get the chance to see some working pieces, which will give an insight into how I operate."
Mr Bainbridge, who teaches traditional sculpture at the University of Hertfordshire, has spent 12 months working on the exhibition.
He said: "It has been a challenge to put it all together, but at the same time it has been great fun. I enjoy exhibitions as it's a chance for the public to see my work.
"I've been really pleased with the response so far and it's nice to have the chance to use the space at Wimpole. It's a real high and exciting to show people what I have been working on."
Mr Bainbidge has also created Roman sculptures for the Welwyn Roman Bath house and produced celebrity sculptures for Madame Tussauds.
- The exhibition will run until October 1 and admission is free.
