Volunteer Wednesday – The return of the tile moulds

20130605_110642So after spending last Wednesday morning carefully packing up all the moulds at Jackfield to bring to Coalbrookdale, members of20130605_110706 IAVG actually managed to make a start on the mammouth task that is recording these beautiful and fascinating objects. There must literally be thousands of fragments to record but we’ve made a good start today with over 50 examples now having been recorded and photographed. There were also some really nice examples including this stunning celtic knot design. DSCF1187 All the information has also been entered into an excel spreadsheet as well so that we’ll have both a paper and digital copy that with then be put together to form the catalogue towards the end of the project. It’s going to be a long project but I can’t wait to see the different patterns and forms of decoration that are on these moulds along the way.
