I’ve just had the great pleasure of visiting a beautiful village in the Wiltshire countryside to meet @LisiAshbridge from ‘It’s Written in Stone’. www.itswritteninstone.co.uk @itswritteninstone.
We were meeting to design a memorial stone for my Dad and I couldn’t fail to be inspired by the creativity in Lisi’s work; from the shapes and fonts that she designs and carves, to the careful positioning of wonderful prose. And it got me thinking about memorials and why they are so traditional and quite frankly, boring. Especially when there are people like Lisi who can create something unique and beautiful.
Talking of sculpture, how about this to make you stop and think...
... just one of many fabulous (and even at times, scary) pieces of original work on show at The Broomhill Art Hotel (@broomhillart, @BroomhillArtHotel) in North Devon (www.broomhillart.co.uk).Surrounded by hundreds of acres of woodland and bound by its own stream it was established in 1997 by Dutch couple Rinus and Aniet van de Sande, and over the years organically grown into one of the largest permanent collections of contemporary sculpture in the South West of England.
