Hestercombe House is now empty and acts as a large gallery. When I visited it was hosting an exhibition called Oceans by Tania Kovats who lives in Devon. The exhibition runs until 11th January 2015 – well worth a visit. Here are a few photos of a some of the pieces of art.
Large wall installation of a calm sea
One of the rooms contains a huge collection of bottles filled with water from the world’s oceans – brilliant
A sculpture of basalt – its the Giant’s Causeway in miniature!
A wave made of wax
This sign is on one of the walls and points back to the building’s former use as Somerset Fire Service’s HQ
