Art on the prom 2006: Big order for rock art.

EDP24 - Big order for rock art:

"But even he was taken aback when a prominent Suffolk artist rang him with a request for 30,000 sticks of rock - to turn into an edible sculpture.

Mr Docwra, 57, whose family has run Docwra's Rock Shop in Regent Road, Yarmouth, since 1922, said: 'The first thing I had to do was check to make sure it was a genuine order.'

He discovered that his sticks of red-and-white rock would be taking pride of place on Felixstowe beach at the Suffolk resort's third Art on the Prom festival on September 3.

Felixstowe artist Bryony Graham, who has earned international recognition for her striking modern work, will be fashioning the rock into a circular mound on the beach.

In a quirky twist, her work will gradually be dismantled during the day with the expected 30,000 visitors taking away a stick to eat."
