Crow population on the increase in Milton Keynes!

Over the past couple of weeks, residents of Milton Keynes have been invited to follow Twitter led clues to find one of a limited number of free sculptures, by artist Edith Garcia.

AHA–MK commissioned Edith to make the ceramic pieces, all crows, which she has been leaving at random places across the city.

Whoever finds the birds gets to keep them.

The project – rolling out as part of MK Gallery’s Made in MK summer exhibition – runs until the end of the month so there is still time to follow the clues and get your mitts on one.

But why crows?

“I have found that since my move to Milton Keynes from London more than four years ago, it is the nature and green spaces that make MK such an amazing and wonderful place to live,” she explained.

“One of the most remarkable and iconic creatures in Milton Keynes is the gorgeous black crows.

“They inspired this project...”

Edith – who has her studio at Artworks MK – has been shortlisted for the British Ceramics Biennal Award in 2013, taking place between September and November at the Potteries Museum in Stoke-on-Trent.
