Found at the corner of the National Forest, the National Memorial Arboretum cares for over 30,000 trees. Its clay soil, for which Staffordshire is world-famous, allows these young trees to thrive.
Mark Frith’s graphite illustrations of ancient oaks from around the UK offer a glimpse into the future of the trees at the Arboretum. The oaks featured have grown from youthful saplings into ancient structures with an enduring beauty and power. Charlotte Barker’s ceramic vessels, constructed from natural materials, are shaped from materials which are at the heart of Staffordshire.
