CREEL LOADERS IS UNDER WAY

In case you are wondering….yes… the work to form the Harbour Gateway is UNDER WAY!  P+K Landscapes of North Berwick have started to prepare the ground and paving will be complete by the end of November.

THE BIG HOLE IS NOT FOR A FOUNTAIN BUT FOR A FOUNDATION THAT WILL WORK TO SUPPORT THE FINISHED PIECE WHICH WILL BE ABOUT 7 TONS IN WEIGHT.

GARDNER IS CAREFULLY CHIPPING AWAY AT THE BLOCK (WHICH STARTED OFF AT ABOUT 20 TONS) AND WILL GRADUALLY REFINE, PIERCE AND CARVE FINER DETAIL IN LINE WITH THE MAQUETTE.
AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE ARE MILLIONS OF STROKES TO THE STONE AND GARDNER WILL WORK AT HIS OWN PACE IN GOOD WEATHER UNTIL HE IS HAPPY WITH THE END RESULT.

The Creel Loaders

Gardner Molloy, a celebrated sculptor from Port Seton, will start work shortly on The Creel Loaders.  The piece will sit in a paved garden in Victoria St and guide visitors to the Harbours.

The Dunbar Harbour Gateway project has been funded by Viridor Credits and a private, local benefactor.  The work is programmed for completion in the summer of 2015.
