Preparing the Liverpool Map for visitors
TOMORROW the Liverpool Museum people are coming to see the work in progress and discuss further details such as the construction of the plinth. We are introduced to Jim who will be actually making the plinth as part of the overall Liverpool Museum installation team. Our Liverpool Map is just a small cog in a much larger project.
Jeff constructs a jig for the polished sample so the client can see how the final might look when installed in its final upright position.
It is exciting and reassuring to finally be able to see the five finished columns together in the order they are meant to be viewed. We site them in the Project Space, which can be viewed from the walkway from the National Glass Centre visitor centre. We are planning to walk the team down tomorrow to introduce them to work from a bird's eye view.
