Details

Sculptor: G H Downing. Designer: Frank Murrier. Made from over 6,000 shaped bricks, this long relief depicts images of the history and industries of the Stoke-on-Trent area. The images include a working mine with miners and pithead, and a pottery with kilns and potters at work. Transport is also included with a horse and cart carrying coal, and several canal boats in dock. The centre of the relief has a large motif that is formed by half a cartwheel, and a radiating circle of hands.
