Eleanor Lakelin

Eleanor Lakelin

In early 2014, a great cedar tree planted at Kingston Lacy by the Duke of Wellington in 1827 had to be felled. In the summer of 2015, on the 200th anniversary of the battle of  Waterloo, the National Trust commissioned London based wood artist Eleanor Lakelin to create a collection of beautiful vessels crafted from the cedar tree. Eleanor Lakelin, recently nominated for the Perrier-Jouët Arts Salon Prize, is an established and celebrated ‘maker in wood’, working with felled trees to produce ethical and sustainable pieces that tell a story of their provenance and the processes used to create them. The vessels are appropriately on display in the Spanish room of the house, as this is where the Duke of Wellington and Bankes would spend time at Kingston Lacy. It was while travelling in Spain and Portugal during the Peninsular War, that Bankes served as aide-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington and their friendship began.

The vessels made from this historic tree are now available to purchase. Each one made to order, crafted for you by Eleanor Lakelin - offering a unique opportunity to invest in a piece of history.
