GOW Back Court, Kelvinside, Glasgow 

A group of neighbours in a triangle of tenements in Glasgow's West End decided to improve the back court, an area of land onto which all their back windows faced.   As part of the improvements, it was decided to make a simple mosaic in the paving which could be seen from the windows high above and which would sparkle and come to life in rain and winter weather.  In addition, a slate sign was made for the back doors to each close, giving the green a village feel. 

 

gow11Having watched me work on these commissions, the local residents were keen to get involved themselves.  As a result, I have now run three community workshops at 'The Gow' and below you will find a selection of photographs to give you a flavour of these happy occasions!
