On Form all-stone garden sculpture exhibition – book now

on form garden sculpture exhibition

Circular Passion by Paul Vanstone is one of the 39 sculptures for sale at 'on form' in the gardens of Asthall manor, Oxfordshire, this year.

On Form is an exhibition of garden sculpture – all of it stone. It takes place in the rural idyll of Asthall Manor in Burford, Oxfordshire.

After going online only in 2020 due to Covid, it returned to the Manor last year and is back there this year from 12 June to 10 July, although you still have to book your tickets in advance, which you can do on the On Form website.

There is an open invitation to stoneworkers and carvers to submit their work to be included in this selling exhibition. Many have found it an excellent opportunity to develop a career in sculpture and carving. It's too late for this year, but anyone who would like to submit work for future exhibitions can find out how here.

There's a five-minute fly-through video of last year's exhibition here.
