Swadlincote Town Hall Railings

I was commissioned by South Derbyshire District Council to design and make these railings as part of the regeneration of Swadlincote Town Centre.  I took inspiration from the industrial heritage of the Town, from the Town Hall itself and from the surrounding buildings. This project included public consultation and a public exhibition of proposals.

 

Dame Catherine Harpur's School Gate and Railings

 

This gate and railings was funded by the Arts Council for England and was desiged with the children of the school. The children were involved from the start and the final design incorporates their drawings.  The project included public consultation and an exhibition of proposals.
