Detail from: Memorial to 158 Squadron by Peter W. Naylor, 2009



Type Other

     Information from Greenfield Valley and Cywaith Cymru: The piece shows two mute swans flying over a water wheel and includes pictures depicting industry of bygone years including a Toredo ship worm with copper bolt and a copper-bottomed galleon.
     In celebration of the Millennium year, Greenfield Valley appointed six artists to create a sculpture trail within the park. The scheme was funded by the Millennium Festival Commission and supported by the Greenfield Valley Trust and various sponsors. Each of the residencies involved workshop sessions with school and/or community groups. Maureen O'Kane worked with pupils from Greenfield CP School who created mosaics of their onw which are now displayed within the school. Maureen also invited local people to attend mosaic workshops.
     'Inspiration for this piece was drawn from a combination of the copper industry of the Valley and its wildlife.' The work was installed in 2000 as part of the Millennium Sculpture Trail at Greenfield Valley Heritage Park.
