Pieces of time

The Castleford Memory Map is progressing. I've been working on this piece since September. The base is completed and I am now working on the map itself.

A selection of the clay relief features for the map. The discs are 100mm diameter, there are around 32 of these discs covering the map.

A few discs placed on the map for size.

Transferring the map onto the wooden pattern. The discs are again placed to see how they are going to fit.

The map is now taking shape. The rivers and canals have been cut out and the major roads put in place. The discs cover the map showing the locations of significant industries, places and events in the history of Castleford. These range from an iron age chariot burial ground to the new foot bridge across the River Aire.
