Celestial Dreaming at Enchanted Parks

On 10th December 2014

A sculptural installation commissioned by Pinwheel and Newcastle and Gateshead Initiative.

Enter Estella’s dream world where her bed sits in the centre of planetary orbits and objects from her life float through her subconscious thoughts.

Over 150 years ago there was a little girl who lived in Saltwell Towers and dreamed of flying to the stars. But space travel in Victorian times is impossible to imagine…isn’t it? Enchanted Parks through a series of artists installations tells the story of Estella, the Stargazer of Saltwell, daughter of the stained glass manufacturer and creator of Saltwell Towers.
