Creation of ‘Speakers Corner’ commissioned by the Houses of Parliament

In 2015 Phil was commissioned by the Houses of Parliament and the Speakers Art Fund to design and create a ceramic mosaic lectern to be placed in Haywood 6th form College at Burslem Town Hall, Staffordshire.

The work was made using recycled 19th century Minton tiles from the House of Commons floor, originally produced in Stoke-On-Trent.

The concept, a ‘speakers corner’, was to provide a debating and lecturing platform for school and community use within Burslem.

The right honourable John Bercow MP was present to unveil the finished work.
