Over recent years I have developed a love of pottering in the garden. Although not a spectacular green thumb the garden continuously evolves and includes a variety of small statues, sculptures by other artisans and a couple of old sculptures I created in years gone by. It has become a sanctuary – a place where I lose myself in the moment – clear my head.
