Lucie Wedgwood Gates at Burslem
Lucie Wedgwood Gates at Burslem
Location: Chapel Lane, Burslem - outside the Health Centre
Installed: 1998
Commissioned by: North Staffordshire NHS Trust
Architect: Philip Wooton
Blacksmith: Edmund Sveikutis

There are four separate panels in the gates,
each of which show figures outlined in steel and filled in with wire mesh
coloured in red, blue, yellow, green, orange, brown and white.

The hands decorating the plate and shaping the pot commemorate the ceramics industry and its significance in the industrial development of the area. Other motifs - the mother holding her baby, the crawling infants, and the obviously healthy children playing children - allude to community health services, past and present, available within the health centre.
