The rich Burmantofts Pottery history and catalogue present in the city of Leeds was the starting point and main inspiration for this public art piece. I work through research, reevaluation, redesign and recreation, so for me it was a pleasure to work and rework this rich immense cultural patrimony. ECHOES is meant to be truly unique but also truly familiar to the community where it is installed; an echo of the past living vividly in the present. Thank you to the entire team at East Street Arts for hosting us in Leeds and a special thank you to my teammate @resendino and honorary teammate @ky135y for the extra effort during these tough and intense British spring days.
