closely with Martin Peacock Senior landscape architect for West Dorset
DC and worked up a paving scheme to incorporate,
a selection process Michael commissioned the local poet Paul Hyland
to create words for the central harbour motif.
BRIT - TIDES WANE & WAX HEMP - ROPE TETHERS - SEAFARER TO SAFE HARBOUR
- SEABED TO POLE STAR -
I have created a series of bronze setts with images relating to the crafts of West Bay and of course fossils although not the way one would expect.
I commissioned Nick Durnan to carve the chains on the stone of the central motif; the stone with a natural ripple alludes to the sand when the tide is low. The chains relate to those that hold the boats in place.
