Horden Dene Interpretation

Horden Dene is an area of England on the Durham coast. It was once a colliery here and the beach was (and still is) covered in coal. But since the closure of the mines the coast is regenerating and wildlife that was sitting below the surface is emerging and flourishing. The local community are justly proud of this area and we worked with the community on the sculptural and interpretative outputs for the site.Some extracts from the interpretation panels:

Big Tiles for Oban

The Oban Bay project has been on the go for around 3 years but finally funding was put in place last year and the whole job is now complete. The project involved putting together 7 panels and we chose Enamelled Stoneware for its hardwearing and quite simply gorgeous look. These panels will be going on the railings right on the sea front - so the hazards are sea, salt, wind, high intensity light, herring gull poo and frost.

The centrepiece of the park is Northumberlandia, a stunning human landform sculpture of a reclining lady. Made of 1.5 million tonnes of rock, clay and soil, she is 100 feet high and a quarter of a mile long. Far from being a rigid manicured art form Northumberlandia is a living part of the countryside that will mature over time and change with the seasons. What you see when you visit is only the start of something that will evolve through generations.
