About this project

National Museum Wales Contemporary Silver Commission

‘The Company of Old Roads’, a sculptural installation by metal artist and silversmith Claire Malet, commissioned by the P & O Makower Trust, will go on display at the National Museum Wales Cardiff, from 12 December 2017.

The installation, in fine silver on a walnut base (carved by woodworker Nick Barberton), makes reference to ‘Roads’ by the poet Edward Thomas (1878-1917), the centenary of whose death falls this year.’
