Peter Lanyon

We're thrilled to have Peter Lanyon creating a bench specifically for Fresh Air Sculpture 2019 and can’t wait to see what he creates.

Emily Kriste Wilcox

Emily Kriste Wilcox’s beautiful ceramics will be part of the 'From Where I’m Standing' selling exhibition at The Pool House Gallery during Fresh Air Sculpture 2019. Emily says… 'Many of these slab-built ceramic vessels hold a painterly expression that can often be attributed to the landscape. The new oblong shapes that are developing compliment [...]

Something special …

I've already sung the praises of the Pool House Pop-Up Gallery and Shop at Fresh Air this year, but Miranda brought to my attention a rather special piece being showcased there.

The sun makes an appearance!

A few days in and we've not had the best weather. Arriving this morning the dogs obviously thought we were in for another chilly, grey day as they snuggled up by the AGA ( don't they look cute!) However before long the above scene was transformed into the one below ... swapping the warm AGA [...]

Day Four & Five

My walk to Fresh Air each morning also means a walk by the neighbours ... here are perhaps the cutest of the neighbours ... They are totally oblivious, of course, to what's happening over the river. Perhaps they will notice the stag that Dorcas Casey installed today ? (Photos to follow next week as I [...]
