Metal Faced Wall

My solo show at Rugby Art Gallery & Museum finishes next week, if you haven't been able to get down I'll be putting more pictures up soon...here's part of the installation using old metal plates of all sizes, 5'' to 35''... thanks to Lee at BDG Manufacturing in Birmingham for passing them on to me instead of scrapping them.

The Jewellery Quarter plays a large part in Birmingham's industrial history, these metal plates made there are old & dusty, found hidden amongst huge machinery 100 years old. Covered in intricate pattern detail they were moulded for lids, trays and plates.                                                            Created by us, they would easily outlive us.
