 Amber has just completed four stained glass windows for Green Mountain Monastery, Vermont, USA.

 She first lived in Rose Cottage, Pentredwr with David Pearl and their toddler in 1983, and was delighted to return to the village in 2008. She restored one of the Ward’s cottages in Pentre ucha renaming it Cloc Dwr. This is her creative retreat where she walks, paints, draws and designs.

 

David Pearl

David Pearl is an artist with close connections to Pentredwr since first living here in 1983, while artist-in-residence at ECTARC. A stained glass Triptych made at that time can be seen in the centre.

 ‘Flowers’, is one of 3 video installations by Pearl for the Hydrotherapy Pool at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool. The works are created as immersive experiences for children in therapy. The sound artist Dan Linn-Pearl composed the score. The work was filmed at 2 locations in Wales: Bishopston Valley in Gower, and the garden of Cloc Dwr in Pentredwr.

I am infatuated with astronomy and the origins of our planet and species. My work combines images from the Hubble Space Telescope and J.M.W. Turner paintings to produce oil paintings, illustrating the sea as a metaphor for space-time, to encapsulate something of the sublime in chaos and calm. I use traditional techniques because of my fascination with the alchemy of paint. Living in Pentredwr influences my work a great deal, as being closer to nature I feel I'm more in touch with a sense of the sublime in daily life.

Its cold in winter. The Welsh cottage walls are so thick I can record music here without the need for soundproofing. You get to point in the direction of your neighbours to show the knock a door run delivery driver where to go. You can see the Milky Way Galaxy on a clear night, and the Ponderosa has a sea view.
