I’m off this afternoon on a SouthernCalifornia adventure, but before I head out I have a something I have been meaning to share with you for a few weeks.
It is the garden and outdoor museum created by artist Robert Tatin. Located near Laval in Normandy, France, the place is open to visitors who want to explore the world of this noted sculptor.
After a long career as a ceramics artist and decorator, Tatin started the project in 1962, at age sixty. For 21 years, he worked on the property, assisted by his wife Lise, to create an environment that reflected his life experiences and view of the world.
Everything was created to share Tatin’s personal philosophies. There are the Pipes of Reason, the Army of Souls and my favorite, the Fairie Queen of Creativity (I love that title and want to make it my own!). The collection is quite extensive. These images are all by Julie Gibbons on Flicker — she has many more in her stream that you can enjoy. Additionally you can find out more at the museums website.
