As 2007 was the 10 anniversary of our straw sculptures we held a competition to find inspiration for our creation. Our competition winner came up with this great idea – Dish of the day. Inspired by fifty years since the dawn of the space age and the construction of the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank!

The Dish itself weighed in at over 6 tonnes and had a 32 foot diameter. The overall sculpture was forty five feet in height.

Snugburys ‘Dish of the day’ supported the Kids Company charity
