I thought about key things in my life important to me. Where you live and who you love come together in Penryn. This included David Bowie who maybe did not ever drink in the Seven Stars but did have a keen interest in Cornish Artists such as Peter Lanyon. The stars also refer to my 3 children.
I have lived in this amazing town for 11 years where I work as an artist with my wife as part of a company called Small Acts. Penryn and its people and history inspire a sense of community that goes to the heart of our projects.
It is fascinating to be invited to make a souvenir of your own life when commemorative plates are more often dedicated to kings and queens. It reminds us that we are also part of and makers of history.
