THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCTION

 

This 8ft steel structure stands at the heart of a community hub in Blurton, Stoke-on-Trent.

The metalwork sculpture is surrounded by ceramic tiles designed by local school children and represents key themes from the area including housing, regeneration, pottery, mining, and horticulture.

MAKING THE TREE 

 Teenagers, Nicolas Mason and Courtney Orpe from Sir Stanley Matthews Academy designed the tree whilst apprentice Jonah Davies who actually lives in Blurton, had a hand in using his skills to help produce the tree. 

This sculpture represents the growth of the area and was created using materials such as steel from local industries.

 


"It was fantastic working on a project in the local community where I live. I see it every day now when I come to PM Training, people are always admiring it!"

Jonah Davies, Artworks apprentice.
