Leading sculptor Peter Randall-Page has been commissioned by University of Birmingham to design and create a new frieze for the Bramall Music Building.

As part of the project we'll be following step by step and providing a behind the scenes storyboard of the making of the frieze from interviews to articles, short films to voxpops.

    Once the slip on each tile is almost dry the pattern from the drawing is traced onto the tile. The line is then scraped away. Once the line has been drawn the rest of the shape can be scraped away to reveal the terracotta beneath

    A grid is drawn onto the wall in Peter Randall-Page’s studio. Plastic sheeting is then taped to the wall and the line is improvised within the grid structure to create the pattern. The design will then be traced onto each individual tile.

    Studio Visit with Peter Randall-Page

    Photographs and text by Jenny Lance


    Peter’s studio, nestled in the grounds of his home, is in the middle of nowhere. Down narrow country roads with high hedgerows and surrounded by dense woodland, the lane opens out into a clearing with a bright green lawn surrounded by a quaint wisteria-covered thatched cottage and a cluster of original brick outbuildings. A true rural idyll. But the peaceful facade hides a hive of activity in the large studio barn adjoining the house and the outbuildings behind.

The Bramall Frieze will complete the semi-circle of ceramic friezes decorating the pavilions at the top of each block in Chancellor’s Court which were created by artist and designer, Robert Anning Bell between 1905 and 1909.
