During Lockdown in the UK 2020, Ceramic artist Sharon Griffin approached fellow sculptor and artist Wayne Chisnall with an idea to collaborate on a sculpture project exploring their own experiences of being in isolation. 

Both artists live and work in their hometown of Wellington, Telford and share a passion of the woodlands and forests found in the Telford and Wrekin area. Both artists are predominantly 'makers' and utilise clay, timber, found objects and metals in their work.

Throughout the initial lockdown during the covid panedimic in 2020, both artists had many lengthy discussions surrounding the theme of freedoms and constraints which led to a collaborative sculpture project named Unlockdown

This is intended to be an ongoing project where each artist releases the control over to the other and to the process of making.
