Riverhaven Artland: Sculpture Park

Riverhaven Artland: Sculpture Park

Riverhaven Artland is being built out of love. When Guy Blundell’s wife Sue died over 20 years ago he started planting trees with a view of creating an arboretum. Inspired by English Landscape Architect Capability Brown he planted thousands of ornamental trees and now many years later Riverhaven looks like a park.

Along the way he fell in love with Sculpture and a new seed was planted. He decided he would make Riverhaven a Sculpture Park, to share his love of the land and Art with others. Together with his daughter Katie (Katie Blundell Artist) they are making his dream a reality.

We offer group guided tours and seasonal events.

See website for visiting details.

Jo and Aidan Raill

Jo Rail

I am a ceramic artist. Sometimes I make mugs and plates but mostly I make sculptures. I use clay to explore my garden and life philosophies. I love the way clay holds my hand marks. All my recent work highlights the malleable nature of clay and its ability to capture gestural marks.

At Half Pint Pottery there is a small pottery school, two studios, mug shop and Half Pint gallery.

The gallery is open most weekends and is full of work made by the resident artists Jo Raill and Aidan Raill. We also host guest ceramic artists/potters several times a year. Check out the website to see what is on.
