Abstract or description

The Portland Pigeon is a decorative ridge tile, created in collaboration with local residents of Portland Street, Stoke-on-Trent.
On display are prototypes for the pigeon created by artists Anna Francis, Rebecca Davies and residents with the aim of developing a product that will be created and fired in the workshop on Portland Street as part of The Portland Inn Project.
The ridge tile will be installed on the newly renovated pound houses in the area - and will soon be available to buy so that people can install on their homes across the UK, demonstrating their support for the project.

The Portland Inn Project is a creative arts project for a community in Stoke-on-Trent that aims to achieve community cohesion, economic, social and cultural development by involving the community in the development of a pioneering community space, cultural hub and social enterprise.
