"Ancient Glass Houses - the core of ancient volcanoes rise above the sand dunes and attract the attention of an ancient Mariner - James Cook - looks across from his wooden barque and is reminded of the Glass House structures in his home town in England - 'These remind me of the Glass Houses' - and the name has come down through the Century!
These wonderful rich soils and hill create a home for many flora and fauna - the sound of the birds, the drip of the dew and the growth of the fungi all collide on the senses - Digital artist and film maker - Wyn Vogel captures the essence of the Mountains - the Spirit of Place - she draws with her calligraphy brush and captures with the eye of her camera - to cut and edit and construct: THE GLASS HOUSES
