Sotheby’s at Sudeley, The Second Year

Last year, I wrote about a selling exhibition at Sudeley Castle hosted by Sotheby’s. Well, I guess it must have been a success because it’s happening again this year.

The exhibition brings together cutting-edge, one-off and limited edition works in strikingly different materials by 11 artists and designers, including Tord Boontje, Amanda Levete, David Adjaye, Ingo Maurer and Paul Fryer. Set amongst the romantic ruins of Sudeley and its award-winning gardens, the works will challenge the boundaries of Design, Art and Craft.

Here are some of the pieces that are scattered around Sudeley’s gorgeous grounds and in the historic ruins.
