Chorley Town Centre, Lancashire
- commissioned and created 2000
- installed November 2002
- budget £5,000.00
- commissioned by Chorley MBC
- collaboration with Diane Gorvin
Made in collaboration with sculptor Diane Gorvin, this piece involves an innovative combination of cast bronze and ceramic mosaic.
Two bronze relief panels display female figures holding out rolls of fabric, each decorated with patterns and images particular to the town of Chorley. Payphones, for example were invented and manufactured in Chorley, the crested newt is protected here and you might also notice the famous Chorley Cakes. As the fabrics tumble down, the designs are translated from bronze relief on the wall surface into 2D mosaic in the pavement.
