Black Country Echoes | Work in Progress | Broadfield House Glass | 27 June 2014

In association with Wolverhampton Art Gallery, The Arts Council and the University of Wolverhampton I have been asked to produce work celebrating and reflecting on the manufacturing and industrial heritage of the Black Country. The attached images were taken at Broadfield House Glass in Kingswinford.

“The people of the Black Country have an unrivalled industrial and manufacturing heritage. But it is not a thing of the past – the area continues to be a creative place of re-invention and innovation. Black Country Echoes is a celebration of this amazing tradition – including a programme of working with local people who share our enthusiasm for recording this history. It will culminate in a major festival opening in September 2014.”
