The Wonders of Jupiter Artland
Last week, we had a wonderful day trip to the enchanting Jupiter Artland, just on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
I have been meaning to go for years but when a friend mentioned they had recently been and thoroughly enjoyed it, we decided to go.
Set in the grounds of the Jacobean Bonnington House, the 100 acre estate plays host to a variety of beautiful and wondrous sculptures and works of art from all manner of artists.

The amount of work displayed is astounding and the owners are always on the lookout for new artists, so do watch this space!
The Boat House (Rivers by Tania Kovats) is a work of art in itself and contains one hundred samples of water from one hundred rivers across the UK. A simple idea but beautifully crafted and thought-provoking.
The Stone Coppice work by the artist/naturalist Andy Goldsworthy is very interesting. He works with the landscape by placing natural objects in differing places to understand what the trees and woodland will do to them and change over time.

For a day out to get away from it all I would highly recommend a visit and of course they have a fantastic cafe by Milk.
I've been very much inspired by all of the above, so please do watch this space for more artwork and inspiration coming from www.morvenna.com soon.
Thanks for reading!
