The work is in the form of a tile tessellation, inspired by the limestone terraces at Black Head, County Clare, Ireland. Some tiles are flat, others curved, and all have textured surfaces that resemble Yorkstone paving. The reverse side of each tile reveals the nuts and bolts of the construction. The work was cast by James W. Shenton Ltd.
