Burn Brae Lodge ceramics project

word_stonesLate in 2013 and early 2014 I had the pleasure of working on a project with some of the residents and staff at Burn Brae Lodge, entitled ‘Discoveries and Delights’. The idea was to facilitate residents in creating various ceramic pieces to be situated in the beautiful grounds, that people could happen upon whilst strolling outside.  We settled on oversized flowers, butterflies and ‘wordy-stones’ an off-shoot of my own ‘Haiku Boulders’. Residents helped to make some of the ‘wordy-stones’ and then, using metal type, I impressed their words, thoughts and poems or other words that held a special significance.
