Scenic artist Stephanie Pasiewicz has designed the layout and the impressive sculptures found throughout the maze. Steph’s previous work has included the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics, Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” (2012) and countless full scale theatre productions.
The installations are designed to work in harmony with nature. Our purpose built pond, the lair of the Lady of Llyn Y Fan Fach, plays host to newts and frogs. Exotic dragonflies and butterflies have also been spotted warming up on the stones of our new megalith and a range of birds, from common robins to the rarer gold-crested wrens, can be seen playing amongst the trees, shrubs and plants.
The Stone Circle seeks to surprise, entertain and to teach a little bit about Welsh folklore.
* Please note that this is magic gold and of no value to human jewellers. It’s of some significance in the fairy world though...
