We were part of a fantastic project to support Barn Owls in Teesside and East Cleveland. 40 new Barn Owl Boxes were made and installed, 26 are now occupied by pairs of Barn Owls. We worked with the Barn Owl Cubs and Beavers of Marske-by-the-Sea to create an 8 foot wing span mosaic Barn Owl which now flys over the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust Headquarters at Margrove Park.

We were asked by Skelton Townscape Heritage Project to create a Mosaic Trail along Skelton High Street, which will be a visual historical record of the people who lived and worked in Skelton. We have worked alongside Skelton History Group, Freeborough Academy, Skelton Villages Civic Pride, BridgeHill Day Service, Skelton Library and various community groups to create these mosaic panels.

This peregrine was commissioned for a house on Falcon Way in Guisborough. Many other roads round there have wonderful bird names like Heron Gate, Redwing Rising, Kingfisher Drive, Osprey Close, Little Grebe, even a Great Auk! We love birds, so we're hoping other residents might want one too.

This is our Fire Sculpture depicting an ironstone miner, a crucible of molten steel and a steelmaker we created for the Fire and Steel Festival. There's a lot of preparation involved in a Fire sculpture, the day before we construct a scaffold frame which is then covered with metal mesh panels. The day of the fire sculpture is spent drawing the design onto the frame using paper rope soaked in paraffin.

We have an audience already!
All done, just time for a hot chocolate before it's lit!
