The Devon Guild of Craftsmen at Riverside Mill, Bovey Tracey, England is set next to a swiftly-moving stream. The soil's high iron content turns the water a brownish-red. The gallery on the edge of Dartmoor National Park is showing selections from area artists and craftsmen created for the "Carbon Footprint" theme competition.
The entry of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen features a patio with bamboo and Japanese maple trees planted in pots handmade by local potters.
Carbon footprints suspended from the ceiling trace a path throughout the gallery space.
