Maze Gaze

As always, we were in search of a blog post so we visited the Crane Estate to view the modern maze structure recently installed on the site of the former maze at the mansion. This artwork is called TunnelTeller by its artist Alicja Kwade. It has concrete walls and steel tubing highlighted by spheres of various sizes. These spheres are polished stone and placed strategically around the maze area.  It’s not a complex maze, you will not get lost.


Peering through the steel tunnels gives an “other-worldly” effect contrasting the steel and concrete with the trees and sky.


It’s an interesting piece that will be on display for several months. Admission to the estate for non-members such as ourselves is $15 (free on weekdays to Ipswich residents) and can be applied to Crane Beach parking ($25 in the high season) if you are so inclined.
