Mike Badger Christmas Metropolis | In the Window | December
Local artist and musician Mike Badger will be installing an incredible one-off Metropolis of recycled tin sculpture in our window for Christmas. Working from a river full of fish, a bridge crossing the river full of cars & trains, to a sky with aeroplanes and maybe some flying saucers! The installation will be our Christmas 'In the Window' display for the month of December with many of the works available for sale.
