In yet another intricate project, Signs Express (Sheffield) has worked with Sheffield Museum's Millennium Gallery to produce a beautiful installation using designs from popular textiles artist Harriet Popham.

Harriet Studied Surface Pattern Design at Swansea College of Art and now works as an Interior Textile Designer and Illustrator. For this installation she combined the Architecture of Sheffield In bird silouettes amongst the plants from Sheffield's Winter Garden. Her floral designs have been transformed into an intricate piece of vinyl artwork that has been adhered to the floor connecting the two John Ruskin Gallery Rooms.

The installation, called 'Birds Buildings and Botany', measured 40 square metres and runs alongside the Museum's new exhibition 'In the Making: Ruskin, Creativity and Craftmanship'. The fitting took two members of the team from Signs Express (Sheffield), almost a day to install and the finish is quite spectacular, running along the centre of a corridor.

Harriet commented, 'I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the team at Signs Express (Sheffield) for all the hard work they put in to making the vinyl. I absolutely love it and installing it was such a wonderful experience. It's great to see your own work going up in such a public space!'

This is not the first time that Signs Express (Sheffield) has worked with local artists and created an impressive installation at Sheffield Museum's Millennium Gallery. The team previously worked with renowned artist Florence Blanchard to transform her famous 'Particles' piece into a visually stunning window graphic amongst other projects.
