Top station for sculptor

THE SET of Stations of the Cross by Sean Crampton, (fourth station pictured) now in place at St Edmund's Church in Caine, Wiltshire, and reported on a few weeks ago, has recently been awarded the Otto Beit Medal for "Best Sculpture of the Year 1986, exhibited outside London."

The Medal is awarded by the Royal Society of British Sculptors and was presented to Mr Crampton at a ceremony following the AGM at the Society's gallery in South Kensington.

The sculptures are a unique example of this artist's work. They took over two y, is to complete and were not made to a precisely preconceived plan but greiv "and developed organically one from another, as and when (between periods of incapacitating illness) the sculptor was able to complete them.

The result is that although the set makes a complete whole as a single work of art, unexpected and individual elements occur, which intensify the mystery of the group and provide a singularly moving expression of Our Lord's Passion.

Sean Crampton, of Rookery, Farmhouse, Calne, Wiltshire, has produced a large body of secular and civic sculpture, but has also --nrkeri widely for the r 01 nis welded work in el rches throughout the country.
