The British sculptor recalls a lecture given by Claes Oldenburg at Chelsea School of Art.

David Nash (b. 1945) describes how the talk stimulated ideas relating to his own artistic practice, and discusses how working closer with the surrounding natural environment led to the creation of 'Ash Dome' (planted in 1977) and 'Wooden Boulder' (1978).
