This lovely little teahouse is sited over a pond in a Zen garden at Careys Manor Hotel in the New Forest. It forms part of a large project introducing a new Fitness centre and pool facilities. The teahouse is a 1.0m Summer Moon with 2 tier roof and has opaque window glazing to give a golden glow when illuminated from inside.
The middle picture shows the refurbished roof of St Matthew Church lychgate complete with solid cedar ridge and unusual finial design. The blackbird of the ridge clearly appreciates the workmanship even if the original builder built the canopy the wrong way round!
The lower picture shows the Raku courtyard garden built for the Yakimono 2 exhibition of Japanese Ceramics at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen. Runs from 15th July 2010 for one month.
