Heather Jansch’s Horses

It was a thrill to get close up to Heather Jansch’s driftwood horse sculptures in her atmospheric, tree-filled garden at the weekend full of exciting vistas and with screeds more trees trying to burst in. With Horses obviously in my mind I took lots of pics and thought you might like to see them. Landscape and art melded together. Bone, cartilage and muscles of wood with horses leaping out of the forest.
For your info, Heather Jansch’s studio and garden is near Chudleigh off the A380 (towards Torquay from Exeter) is not often open but here’s her website so you can catch the horses and foals in their own wild habitat one day. www.heatherjansch.com
