The Peace pole project was initailly organised by Tim Shelley the manager of the Haygrove Community Garden (www.haygrove.com) Made in Ross is pleased to say that Tim has taken delivery of our contribution to this project.
Our peace pole was decorated over the Spring and Summer when the gallery was closed, and finished off when we re-opened by a small team of artists from the Made in Ross collective, Jackie Poulter, Louise Pilditch, Eleanor Kercher, Annabel Neilson and Frances Warren.
Louise researched the folk lore and images
which were integrated onto the pole with words of peace. All together the poles were to display 100 languages. Of those 100 we were allocated Chinese, Russian Filipino and Ruandi to create designs for.
As we are based in Ross we decided to include a number of hedgehogs in the design. The pole is topped off with a cheerful cap of bouncing hedgehogs created by Eleanor Kercher, a green woodworker member.
From the basic wood pole to a finished decorated Peace Pole.
