Prospect Hill Soaring to new heights

The Official unveiling of the Sculptors @ Crystal Lake sculpture “Soaring Prospect” will be held this Sunday November 4th, 10am at Prospect Hill by the honorable Mayor Ann Ferguson.

The impressive 2.7 metre black granite sculpture sits on the hill at the entrance to this historic township. It was an incredible achievement by the talented sculptor Ben Tolhurst to have carved such a large sculpture over only 9 days during the 2017 Sculptors @ Crystal Lake symposium.

The Prospect Hill Community are very fortunate to have commissioned such an asset for their town.

Anyone interested in stone sculpture or commissioning a sculpture, the next Sculptors @ Crystal Lake Symposium will be held at Crystal Lake Sculpture Park Macclesfield 6th – 14th April 2019.
