Shipbuilders and Fisherfolk Hartlepool

Part of the Shipbuilders & Fisherfolk exhibition at Hartlepool Art Gallery, a commission exploring and celebrating the maritime heritage of Hartlepool. The work that Jonny created draws inspiration from the Museum of Hartlepool’s collections, the heritage buildings themselves, the landscape and bygone industries of the North East of England, and hundreds of tales and contributions from the local community

H and L Registration Letters
The fishing industry in the UK has its own registration system which identifies the port of origin of each vessel. All boats registered in Hartlepool are adorned with the letters ‘H’ and ‘L’

Here are Jonny’s illuminated letters featuring a cod and female riveter. The two metre tall letters have been attached to a doorway at the Museum of Hartlepool
