Annotation

From PMSA:
The work was undertaken during a six month residency. During this time Dominic Clare worked with various community groups, including local schools, as well as communicating with visitors to Celtica. His main aim was to design and create a number of artworks to be situated at various locations in the grounds surrounding Y Plas. Most have a particular function, such as tables, seats and signposts. A large sculpture is visible near the main entrance and behind the black tribal mask the sculpture is shaped to create sheltered seat. The sculptures were created in wood, mainly oak, with other materials used to create the complex patterns seen on the surface of many of the pieces.
