In the forest, just down the road, I recently came across something pretty magical.  Something unique and intriguing but hidden and secret, and yet open to everyone.  You may be lucky and stumble upon this surprising place, but more likely than not, you won’t.  Deep in the woods in the small village of La Colle sur Loup on the French Riviera, an artist has been hard at work, creating a number of unusual, organic, mystical and ephemeral works of art.  For a year, from sometime in 2014 to 2015* British sculptor Spencer Byles spent all day every day producing around 40 amazing forest sculptures out of materials he found in the surroundings.  He called his project “A year in a French Forest”.
