Words on a Cup and Conversations

A collection of objects, made in clay that have evolved from initial responses to the garden and itís resonance with the work of Strathcarron.

A walk round a garden where the community is at the centre. Follow the path from the tree to find a courtyard with seats, plants in pots and a window looking out. Boxes with memories inside, objects in plant pots outside. Keep on the path, soft grassy verge and a view over the field, around the building, quiet places to sit beside water. Fields disappear over the hill, the path curves round to a dovecot. Further on thereís a bench with a bird ornament underneath, the seat looks over childrenís swings and on to the pond. Snowdrops in a circle LISTEN to the garden. Words on a cup and conversations are a lasting memory BE SURPRISED.
