All in Zinc Etched Panels
This is the end of a two year process of design and various stages of interpretation ideas. The brief originally came to us with the desire to create a series of hubs using cut through corten steel. However, we felt that this treatment was a little unsympathetic to the project aims so we created a completely new design. The hubs came from the notion of a pit wheel within which we introduced the stories of the landscape setting for each hub. Thus the story is in steel. The interpretation panel inserted into the hub puts flesh on the bones of these stories. The spinning zinc etched discs and coloured resin introduce a fun element allowing for the interpretation to appeal to a wide ranging audience including children.
Redhall Estate is in Darlington and is surrounded by countryside and increasing development. The Redhall Nature reserve on site is full of grassland species such as six-spot burnet moths and butterflies of all kinds.
We had a small part to play in the development of this memorial space for the Bradford Brothers in Witton Park. Our role was simply to produce a Zinc Etched Interpretation Plaque to be fitted to a stone plinth.
The pillbox at Middle Warren, Harltepool no longer exists but in its place there is a new Interpretative Feature which tells the story of First World War defences. This Pillbox Marker is made of concrete and features a map and story panels about Pillboxes.
We have just installed this new zinc etched panel outside of the Holy Trinity Church, Sunderland. We wrote and illustrated the panel before fabricating it locally and installing it. One of the main features of this panel was the colour insert onto the panel which adds a colourful twist to the historical interest.
We have just completed the manufacture and installation of a new Zinc Etched Interpretation Panel for a site in the middle of the Pennine AONB. The project involved illustrating this former chapel, designing and manufacturing the zinc etched interpretation panel, manufacturing the single leg stand and installing.
Tactile discs for use as Brass Rubbings are really popular and really inexpensive. They can be produced in a number of different materials including Zinc Etched Steel and Stainless Steel.
Their remit is to develop a heritage trail around Ecclefechan. This involves research into the letters of Thomas Carlyle to extract interesting and relevant sections tell stories that illustrate the social history of Ecclefechan. This would bring to life some of the local characters through anecdotal tales. We envisage the interpretation in the form of tactile zinc etched panels with the letters being produced in relief along with images of local landmarks, characters and buildings.
