Rhiw Bach - mis Hydref - Marged Pendrell

A walk to Rhiw Bach Quarry began a series of small concertina books…

1. Exploring the pattern and form of text -Yn Cymraeg ac yn Saesneg-using words relevant to the quarries and their mapping.

2. Drawing and mapping the patterns of walls in the quarry.

3. Exploring the concept of the disused ,the absent yr absennol  -using form, text as line and colour of the walls.

Many of the windows and doors of the quarry village houses had a strong presence as the spaces were filled with built slate blocks.

These books began my mapping process.

Mapping  using physical materials:

  1. Book of found quarry  slate dust (and detail)

  2. 3D -mapping using sand from Porthmadog /local clay ,fired ….absent path of grass

Y Chwareli Gogledd Cymru - the Quarries of North Wales

Lindsey Colbourne

A series of maps (using slate dust and holes) of the locations of the (40+!) different types of quarries - these are lead, slate, iron, manganese and copr. There are more than five thousand quarries and mines in North Wales, according to Jeremy Wilkinson’s Gazetteer and Bibliography of the Mines and Quarries of North Wales (and Dave Linton’s online searchable version). Reflecting on the Welsh and English names of those holes, the scale and extent of the digging, the number of lives tied up with it at home, at work and overseas, and the sheer extent of our need for stuff and its impact on the world, has become something of an obsession.
