Romancing the Gibbet

As promised details of the two performances

Numbers for Bottle Kiln Court

So the jobbing work is completed and all the numbers are finished for Bottle Kiln Court in West Brierley, in the West Midlands.  The numbers will go onto the houses and flats and the bronzes into the paving.  It is always good to use artists to create something unique for these housing ventures and it takes foresight from the companies in this case Lioncourt Homes.  We need more enterprising companies using the skills of artists in our society that seems to be depleting artists from their normal source of income ie just creating art, because less we forget art is fundamentally important in a healthy society.
