Inspiration at Politmore House

We spent the day at Poltimore House today (just outside Exeter, on the way to Broadclyst),  drawn by the fantastic plant sale they have there annually and we love the overgrown walks through the wild flower woods. The ghosts of the past and the houses former glory hang heavy in the air and the atmosphere is a strange combination of hope for the future and a melancholy edge that comes from a derelict house, especially such a grand one!

The house and grounds are being slowly restored by the dedicated trust of local people who are trying to bring the derelict house and grounds back to good condition and make it a centre for the arts.  Its a big dream of mine to have one of the future art studios for my workplace in a few years time when they convert the house into studios!

Anyway, the semi wild gardens are hugely inspirational to me, as are the small areas of decaying grandure left int he house and I hope to make some designs from the photos I took today of the house and grounds

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.
