The Teignmouth TRAIL has now opened along the seafront and includes recycled artworks to raise awareness of environmental issues. There are 14 sculptures created by individual artists, community groups and young people. This year there is also a prize for growing a green sculpture provided by Toby’s Garden Centre. The event runs until September 2nd and Wallace the Wet Wipe Monster will be visiting TRAIL on Teignmouth seafront on August the 15th, 16th and 17th, from 11AM each day
A local Brixham group of potters has created the Lupton Crackpots using salvaged ‘groggy’ clay to create a series of heads planted with real succulents grown on from ‘mother’ plants over the summer and ferns grown by the Four Seasons gardening group of disabled people who meet at Lupton. Reclaimed materials have been used for imaginary hair. The group are renovating the old pottery at Lupton testing materials, slips and glazes to get it up and running again.
Lupton House, near Brixham, is a not for profit organisation, supporting the group to restart the pottery. The heads will be on sale there after TRAIL at the café with some others available for purchase on Saturday 19th August at the Lupton holistic fair.Follow
