Rachel has been commissioned by People Express to create a new series of sculptures for the Saltbrook Heritage Trail, funded by Nestle, Heritage Lottery & South Derbyshire District Council.
The new sculptures take inspiration from the blown glass industry of the past, a small team would work together to create blown glass wares. The sculpture references the 'Taker In', the 'Parison' and the 'Blower' who were reliant on each skilled member to create delicate blown glass.
Over Spring and Summer Rachel will be working with members of the community of Hatton, South Derbyshire delving into the history and engaging residents in workshops, before creating the series of sculptures.
