Light of the City
Potteries Museum & Art Gallery,
Sculptor: David Annand. This sculpture celebrates the centenary of the federation of the six towns that make up Stoke-on-Trent. The female figure holds a vessel that represents the Staffordshire Hoard, the most valuable collection of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found, and the male figure holds a plate which reflects the city’s ceramic heritage. The names of the six towns that came together to form the city of Stoke-on-Trent are on the plinth that the two figures are standing on.
