“Makers ” is a mixed media experimental installation created in a field next to the site of a long defunct iron ore mine in West Cumbria. The handprint on text is suggestive of a miner or workers hand whilst the rolled balls of iron rich clay are reminiscent of steel ball bearings used in the grinding and crushing manufacturing processes involved in refining the end product. The artwork and  rural location evokes poignant past times of a long gone industry and the hard working life of an iron ore miner.
