Film channel ‘waterlevelrising’ writes: “A short section from the 2007 film ‘Spirit in Mass’ by Anna Thornhill about the Alan Thornhill sculpture ‘Bond’, conceived around 1983 and acquired by the Jerwood Foundation’s Jerwood Sculpture Park collection in 2000. Also interviewed, artist/curator Clare Carswell.”

Stroud’s Museum in the Park is hosting a retrospective show of Alan’s work until 27th August 2012. Alan’s association with Stroud goes back many decades and he has donated five large sculptures to the museum. Alan also set up Hawkley Pottery in the Toadsmoor Valley, Eastcombe which he successfully ran for nine years. Alan has also given work to the Putney Sculpture Trail, that is permanently accessible to the public, with 9 works by Thornhill on the south side of the river between Leaders Gardens and Prospect Quay adjoining Wandsworth Park.
