The mural was created on a 7×5 foot wooden board in early September 2017 over two days during my artist in residence post at Ceramic Wales,Regent Street,Wrexham College of Art for Glyndwr University. I used enlarged photocopies of beach tideline ceramic finds collected from North Beach in Whitehaven,West Cumbria. The subject was an old 18th century Cumbrian ceramic milk jug which was relevant to the theme of the festival. The photocopies were cut out and arranged jigsaw style within the form and then pva glued down once the correct position had been established. The artwork was created outside the main entrance to the College to attract the attention of passers by .Bad weather threatened to disrupt the process throughout but an overhead roof gave me just enough shelter.
