​Our monumental sculptures escaped the grounds once again, as Charlotte Mayer's Pharus was chosen to decorate the Entrance of the Goodwood Racecourse in 2008.

The artist Charlotte Mayer has not often had the opportunity of working on such a large scale. Always making her own models for casting, she remained determined to do so, even on this monumental scale. She made the flames in sections, carving and texturing them in her studio, before assembling the whole sculpture round a gigantic cone in her London garden. The contrast between the roughness of the flames on the outer surfaces and the smooth inner core provides further aspects to explore in this, Mayer's largest sculpture to date.
