Steel Structure

The last item on the tree was one of the trickiest ~ the Bushfield Road Infant School pupils had had their imaginations caught by the fossils, Romans and Vikings quite easily, but maybe understandably they weren’t as taken with the steel-industry displays from the museum; I think perhaps when the youngsters have grown up surrounded by such industry it’s been just another element of everyday life, and it’s possibly only as they get older that the magic and importance of the steelworks to the area will hit home.

So a design for the steel industry was required, something symbolic but also something found in the museum display. It was agreed that the ladle image found on some plaques for long service was suitable:



A bit of artistic license with the flow of the steel with the ladle, just so it didn’t stop dead as on the plaque.

FINISHED!!! (except for oiling!)
