A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

I was going to write a rather wordy ( well for me anyway ;) post describing my love and the debt I owe to my local landscape where I wonder regularly and gain such huge inspiration for my ceramic work and for my well... life in general really.

Sullington Warren is a National Trust owned (woop woop the National Trust!!) rare heath land full of majestic Scots Pine and delicate purple and white heather. You will often find me there taking in it's natural beauty, in ore of the wonderfulness that surrounds me. I am lucky too cause I can go there whenever I like as my garden backs on to it and all I have to is go through the gate to get in there!

But I figured a picture says a thousand words and here are some I took on a recent walk about there.
Maybe these photos explain a little bit as to why my work is like it is and where some of my inspiration comes from.
It's funny pieces and the things I create can never be as beautiful as what is already created right here...


  1. We owe a lot to Mother Nature xxx Lovely images to x

  2. how true... thanks for sharing!

  3. So true and what wonderful photos! Although I don't back onto it, a 10 minute walk up or down the road leads to to Sutton Park which is now a national reserve and very similar to yours. How luck are we to have this type of place on our doorsteps. I always feel calm and at one with nature after a walk through my park. x

  4. Lovely photos.
