Wonky Heidi goes to Cornwall part 3


The Tremenheere Sculpture Garden has been on my to-do list ever since I discovered it on Instagram a few months ago. It is hidden away in the countryside close to Penzance.

We walked up a forest path, which reminded me of a New Zealand rainforest, beautiful, wild and full of subtropical plants.

We had a map to find the sculptures and look up the artists.

"Slip of the lip" Peter Randall-Page RA

"Black Mound" David Nash RA

Perspex Wind Sculpture Michael Chaikin

My absolute favorite by James Turrell RA:
"Tewlwolow Kernow (Twilight in Cornwall)"
An elliptical domed chamber designed as a space from which to view the sky.

Entry to the chamber.

We had such an amazing time, exploring the 22 acres, enjoying the view across Mounts Bay, discovering the works of art and the flora.
