*Frantically digs out hat and gloves* Brrr! 🥶 Things got a bit nippy overnight here on the moors. Most of the white stuff will have turned to mush, but it can still be lethal on the roads. Take extra care and watch for weather warnings. Winter guidelines are in our bio ❄️ 📸 Tavy Cleave this morning taken by @dartmoor_runner
The Devil’s wood yesterday. The dark huntsman type with hell hounds and lost souls.
I have to admit I kind of fell under it’s charm. Crazy contrasty sunlight and ancient stone paths.
This wood is official haunted at night ... (there is an information sign that says so)
Yesterday I visited the St Michael’s Church in Brent Tor. On my hike up, I passed some people who were heading down. One of the women told me that it was on a lay line that held lots of energy. It truly was an amazing place. #stmichaelschurch#brenttor#dartmoor#laylines
Colourful #ceramics created by abbie gardiner ceramics brighten up #PresentMakers 2019.
Abbie is a self-taught# maker who hand-builds sculptural and functional ceramic forms in a small studio at the top of her garden on the edge of #Dartmoor "I manipulate soft slabs of speckled white and textured black clays by pinching, coiling, casting, press-moulding and carving to create strong, solid shapes. I then trim, fettle and sand each piece to achieve fluid, smooth and balanced forms. I leave the surfaces marked with subtle tactile memories of the making process and add bold matt and satin colours to emphasise the simplicity and silhouette of each piece"
