Materials: Sandstone, Concrete, Richlite

‘Home’ is designed as a series of sculptural way-markers.
The form is based on the shape of old vernacular cottages
that were once dwellings and places of work and of
which, many fine examples can still be seen in Milngavie.
blonde sandstone, once quarried at Mugdock and used in
construction in Milngavie, has been cut to form the top
sections of the sculptures. The concrete plinths hold a
mixture of cast in and acid etched text, referencing the
names of former industrial sites and their workers. These
sculptures act almost as memorials to lost local industries
and specific buildings associated with them, as well as
carrying the name of an individual associated with that
industry.
