Today Kasia and I visited Jupiter Artland, a secluded sculpture park outside Edinburgh. We timed it just right before it got busy, and spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around the woodland admiring the sculpture.
This is 'Firmament' by Anthony Gormley, inspired by an old star map:
Although I love to look at sculpture, it doesn't often move me. An exception to this today was the group of sculptures called 'Weeping girls' by Laura Ford. I thought these were the best sculptures in the whole place - very sad and rather chilling, with such attention to detail in the hands and shoes, in a perfect setting in the deserted woodland:
Seeing so many different styles on such a larger scale than my own work was very refreshing!
Meanwhile on a much smaller scale, yesterday I completed a prototype pair of earrings in my favourite wooden bezels.
