Tony Cragg: 'Be there, see it, respond to it'

We visit the studio of one of Britain's leading sculptors

Born in Liverpool in 1949, Tony Cragg's love of the natural world as a child was the catalyst for a lifelong fascination with material and form. In this film he talks through the process of creating some of his most recent work, introducing us to the team who help him to realise his unique vision for structure and form.

Now based in Wuppertal Germany, in 2008​ he opened the Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden​. Open to the public, the sculpture park houses a steadily growing and changing collection of sculpture by internationally known artists as well as featuring some of his own work​.​
