A CLAY sculpture has been installed on a Weston estate which reflects the area’s ‘rich’ history.

Bridge Road, opposite Six Ways Chip Shop off Drove Road, WsM. Sculpture of a Diatom being installed by artist Rod Harris.

Artist Rod Harris has created the contiuum diatom, a four-metre high artwork, which takes pride of place in Bridge Road on the Potteries.

He completed the sculpture, which complements another artwork on the estate’s Millennium Green, after months of research and consultation with the community.

The Potteries is the original site of Weston’s famous Royal Potteries and Rod designed the sculpture to reflect this.

The installation marks the completion of the Rhynes Art project Revealing the Hidden, which was commissioned by the South Ward Neighbourhood Management Partnership.
