Herringthorpe Valley Image Project - 2008

Materials: stainless steel, steel, bronze and stone


I was commissioned to produce a number of generic works to include six entrance features, seating, allotment gates, bollards and artworks for schools. This project was part of a larger landscaping scheme by Groundworks Dearne Valley with the aim of creating a sense of identity for the area.  All this work was supported by a strong community participation programme working with schools, young people, disabled groups, retailers, allotment holders and residents working with themes of history and identity. I was responsible for creating, managing a delivering the community programme which included exhibition panels, leaflets and a website. Over 300 people took park in the workshops producing over 1000 pieces of work.
