Amazing Space II last weekend
This weekend is the last chance to come down to our special place, The Dove (SAW venue 21) and catch what has been a much visited and dare I say much loved exhibition (the comments books say so, anyway). Here’s a round up of what you will see when you come, and what, in the words of one visitor, is ‘rich and lush’.
Bron Bradshaw’s ceramics and etchings inspired by our USA trip, leading to….
Diana Milstein’s paintings and poems from the trip
And Sandie Roche’s rugs and blankets forming a colourful backdrop.
Di and Bron’s pottery inspired by the Native American tradition sits on the big Rochat press,
and Bron’s Grand Canyon etching on the back wall above the Hunter Penrose press.
The path through Mike Dodd’s garden leading to….
his pottery showroom.
Back through the garden and up the metal staircase to the Spirit of Place exhibition – here are the specially commissioned books,
Faye Suzannah’s screenprints,
Some of Myfanwy Morris’s b/w photos,
Diana Milstein’s ‘Dove’ landscapes,
Works by individual book artists
Some of the pit fired pots from this summer
and Bron Bradshaw’s ‘Pine Platters’ with ash glaze made from the Scots pines in the treehouse corner.
Down the steps, past Pennie Elfick’s ‘Shed Plus’
and across the meadow to the Treehouse platform, with laminates of pages from the books as a reminder that one day the books themselves will be housed in a library here.
Here’s how the tree house platform looked this evening; the structure revealing itself a little more each day as the leaves fall.
This weekend we are running an event for all ages: Design (draw) your own treehouse. This is a free drop in workshop, with all materials provided. Hope to see you down here!
