 To hang in the communal space of a new commercial building with private office suites.  The remit specified that the commission was to be of a size to fit comfortably in the available space, to marry together the colours of the carpets and furnishings, to compliment the contemporary interior, to reflect the former use of the site as a pottery works and to echo the design device of a square, as used in the signage around the building.  This lead to the production of three oil paintings depiciting, in essence, the workers from the pottery going about their daily business.  Using a strictly limited pallet and the square device to bring all three images together.  Each painting measures 1m x 1m.  The client in Verwood was very pleased with his purchase and the works drew many complimentary comments when the building was opened to the public.
