About this artwork
2nd in the series.
Part of an ongoing obsession with what I've now discovered are
COAL HOLES, not manholes
from back in the day when coal was delivered into holes in the street, to go into people's homes & workplaces
scattered around England.
What fascinates me is that these humble, functional round metal plates were actually designed by people, like us: designers, artisans, creating stuff that hopefully combined form with function.
I tip my hat to these anonymous artisans, who have only left their cryptic names in the designs that people now ignore as they walk around London.
Except, I don't.
I try to record them all.
