I have created some initial surface pattern designs for Broadbent Studio and the Pontypool Patterns Project. These will soon be presented to a steering group in Pontypool, who will select their favourite designs to be developed. The chosen patterns will then feature on sculptures inserted into George Street as part of its redevelopment.
Aspects of Pontypool’s heritage and culture have inspired the patterns, including Pontypool’s rugby team, its industry, its market and its fabulous park. I have also designed a pattern inspired by the artwork created by local school children for the project.
I look forward to hearing the feedback from the Pontypool community and developing the designs further following this.
