Elizabeth Cooke’s sculpture, Cormorant, is perfectly placed in Thorpe Meadows where the real-life cormorants frequent the waters.

Made from a combination of found and hand finished materials, the characteristics of this bird have been recreated with skill and simplicity. He stands proud – catch in beak, wings spread wide.

Cooke has the ability to capture movement and poise within the most minimalist forms, creating pieces that demonstrate flow and finesse through much less delicate and unrefined materials.

Cormorant was purchased in 2007 after being on loan from the artist.

Accessibility

The paths around the rowing lake are hard surfaced, flat and suitable for push chairs and wheelchairs.
