Moor Inspiration

image

We can see Dartmoor from our garden and yesterday answered their eiree call and headed for the hills. I get so many ideas for designs this way and Vixen Tor is my new muse. It has it’s own legend (as any self respecting Dartmoor landmark should) and it is said that a witch lives in the rocks and conjours up mists to lure travellers to¬† their death in the marshy bogs beneath. We could not find out for sure about the witch, as the Tor itself is on private land. But Dartmoor’s highest stone stack is a stark beauty wouldn’t you say?

Checking on the sculptues

It’s summer on the South Devon coast and the 10th year of TRAIL (Teignmouth recycled art in landscape). I enter every year and this year I have made 3 exstinct birds from broken washing machines and old junk. They are (from the left) a Great Aulk, Do Do and Solomon Island Crested Pigeon. Every day we go check on them, make sure they are happy in their roosts and that their solar light eyes still work. My kids have never known any different. An annual ritual as ingrained as leaving a snack for Father Christmas. http://www.trail.org.uk


I am a stained glass artist working in Exeter and a busy mum of 2; trying to carve a path through the tide of washing and children's toys that stands between me and making beautiful things.
