Marjan Wouda and Sir Hare Sculpture
Marjan and Sir Hare

Marjan Wouda

The poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, used the word ‘inscape’ to describe the various characteristics that give each thing its uniqueness.  The term could be used to describe Marjan Wouda’s animal sculptures. Marjan is able to capture in clay, bronze or steel the essence of an animal’s character, how it moves, its structure and the bones beneath the creature’s fur, hair or feathers.
