Using only sticks, stones and leaves British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy creates enchanting temporary land art and sculptures that can take form at around the roots of trees, across open water and along woodland footpaths. Their appearance and location gives them an almost fairytale like quality but also makes them incredibly satisfying to look at, our particular favourite being the first image you see below thanks to it's vibrant 'glowing' appearance.

Goldsworthy's work is transient which leads many people to view it as a comment on how fragile the earth can be and this is in fact true, however over time Goldsworthy has come to realise that some of his own observations are far to beautiful to be described as just 'decay'.
