Launched my boat!

Despite a wild night I got my sculpture up last night, in its spot, just to the left of Teignmouth Pier. It was a truly wild night for weather, lashing rain and gales and I had to really battle with the elements. However, it was still there when I went to finish it off today and I have got the Kaleidoscope in place too, so I really have completely installed it! The clouds broke for a brief moment for me to take a couple of photos……….more bad weather on the way tonight, fingers crossed it lasts the summer!

My sculpture is part of the TRAIL summer exhibition, this is a free sculpture trail running from Teignmouth to Dawlish (South Devon) seafront for the whole summer! All the sculptures are made of at least 70% recycled materials and it is a great day out for all the family, especially keeping the kids walking with interesting things to look at!  You can also vote for your favourite installation and there is a a prize for the public vote!

Lets just hope no one tries to take it for its virgin trip, it is very heavy and has 2 wholes in the bottom and is totally rudderless! I got some very strange looks from the surfers riding the massive waves last night and even stranger ones from the elderly people walking their dogs this morning!

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.
