** The history of the Pottery Gardens of Hillen begins a little over 20 years ago, with the crush of Renate and Lutz Hillen for an agricultural property in the Hautes-Pyrénées. At the time, the promise came down to 5 hectares of heavy, sticky soil, planted with only 6 old trees. A desolate land whose hedges had practically disappeared. Never mind, they will be replanted, favoring endemic species. At the same time, the gardens are taking shape: rose gallery, northern garden, exotic garden, gourmet garden with a medieval influence… Through the seasons and by shining around the dwelling, Renate and Lutz give life and color to this ancient agricultural land. In doing so, they realize their desire to create a space of biodiversity where man, fauna and flora coexist harmoniously. Without forgetting the art, which mixes with the party and invites itself on both sides of the garden. And the works that we come across are not there by chance, since they come straight out of the pottery workshop of Renate and Lutz. The demonstration of the talent of the owners of the places for working the land - whether vegetable or modeling - is thus done and well done. **
