Clare Woods - Brick Field

The artist Clare Woods was commissioned to make a permanent public artwork, Brick Field, for the 2012 Olympic Park in London. Part of that work has been reproduced and is located outside the entrance to William Brookes School, as part of the Much Wenlock Public Art Trail.

Brick Field takes inspiration from the traces of the roads, waterways and railways of the London Olympic site’s history, prior to the development of the park, which were discovered through maps, photographs and old prints.

The painting was digitally photographed and, through a complex process of digital printing, screen printing of special colours and water-jet cutting, the piece was realised in tiles by the specialist historic tile fabricators Craven Dunnill Jackfield, who are based at Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire.
