Open Gardens 2

Decorative glass panels made by Anne-Marie Lowe were an attractive feature in this garden, shown as part of the Saltaire festival.

Carved stone and bronze sculptures (below) by Terence Lister enhanced another patch. 

The carved head (below left) was tricky to photograph, as the chair (not, I think, part of the artwork) was set at a drunken angle. 

On the right, some graceful ceramic swifts on wire stems that swayed in the wind brought colour and movement to a small yard. They and some pretty ceramic bowls were the work of 'The Potting Studio' based in north Leeds. 

And finally, these colourful aluminium and copper 'flowers' displayed on a wall in a small backyard were by Cian Carroll.


  1. I'd be afraid of breaking anything like that if it were in my back yard. My bike would be bound to fall on them!

  2. Thanks for the virtual tour...love seeing ceramics brought into garden spaces!

  3. It is nice to see art in the gardens!

  4. The glassworks are beautifully done!
