''W''

Carved in millstone Grit at Whittle Hall Warrington.Commissioned By English Partnerships.

The initial idea came from the Celtic origins of the site. There is a kind of cryptograph within the jigsaw overall the design is an illuminated letter W .

The name Warrington is derived from weir and ton meaning enclosure so I am incorporating a river enclosed within a knotwork border symbolizing the enclosure. There are various creatures within the illuminated design which is fragmented like a broken plaque with the pieces scattered along the path.

The enclosure will serve to link the pieces giving a continuous frame around the piece and a hint to the origional continuity of the design.
