Brick and Broch2018
Brick and Broch, part of the Denny Treasure Trail, 2018; cast iron and stainless steel. Commissioned by Falkirk Council as part of the £7.6m regeneration project in the centre of Denny, Falkirk, Scotland. This sculpture symbolises the former cast iron foundry crucibles. One is in the shape of a broch similar to nearby Tappoch Broch, the other in the form of a 'bee-hive' brick kiln as used in Denny's former brick works. With the dice they resemble cups or shakers referencing the printing of board games at the paper mills that once stood along the River Carron. On the dice are company names remembered from Denny's industrial past.
