Terracotta plinths

Terracotta bases for oversized ceramic musical applesAlthough the tech ‘fits’ under the apple – it does feel decidedly snug and, as I’ve recently discovered, makes assembly of the whole a bit of a faff.

So, I’ve decided to sit the apples on their very own terracotta plinths. Here’s one with the addition of sound holes for added amplification.

Bone tech!

Apple Pye!

The amazing images will shape the promotional flyer to accompany the interactive installations in all three Hereford Museums, designed to signpost visitors to each venue.

 

Noels Wonderful Water Park

Anique work bench awaiting crusty rural sound jugs by artist potter Jon WilliamsI met with Noel, the Waterworks Museum’s Director on Monday and as is customary, we finished our meeting with a a stroll around the Waterpark to view progress.

It’s been a long time in the making but the Park full of pumps and pistons¬†is nearing completion.

All the interactive activity stations have been built by the industrious team of volunteers and the final interpretation is being prepared at the printers.

The site officially opens on the 26th July 2015 and hopefully the Potter’s Bench (above) will be primed with Musical jugs and ready for action. Watch this space!
