Gwennap Graveyard, Jeremy Visick and Open Studios

28 May

LiveWire 2 has just finished reading one of his Great Grandfather’s books, Jeremy Visick, and wanted to be taken to see the gravestone that inspired my Dad, David Wiseman, to write the story. We found the gravestone to the Martins, looked at the cottage where Matthew lived, walked through the avenue of yew trees, walked by the stream where Matthew’s Dad washed the car, found Wheal Maid…… it was wonderful to hear J quoting from the novel and asking to find the next place!

After lunch we went on another Open Studios tour, mainly because the children wanted to see Nicky throwing pots. They were totally engrossed! We were then encouraged to visit the other Open Studios in the village of Crowan and discovered such treasures – Cormorant Reconsidered Furniture where unique and beautiful furniture is to be found. I wish we had room for at least one piece. I just loved the mirrors made by Joanna Moran and the originality of her thought and creativity.  From there we went to visit Martin Douglas Guitars, more beautiful work, this time handmade guitars which were inspiring! The children enjoyed each and every visit but loved the pot throwing the best.  Open Studios continues all next week so there is plenty of time to go and visit!
