Families remembered in bricks
Emma Smith has created an art installation at the Brickworks Museum, Swanwick, Hampshire to remember all those people that were employed in the brickmaking industry.
On the 31st May the mayor of Fareham opened the exhibition to the public.
The installation consists of thousands of brickettes each made by hand by Emma with the initials of a person that worked to make bricks. The names came from a list of approx. 80,000 names from the UK generated from the 'Brickmakers Index' compiled by David Cufley, president of NWKFHS.
