Whitehaven C2C Marker

The 'C2C' marks the start of the coast to coast cycle route, from Whitehaven in the West to Sunderland in the East. 

The piece is based on a folded map with the two coast profiles lazer cut up each side.  To mark Whitehaven and Sunderland on the piece, two discs of handmade glass have been inserted into the plate.  On high tides the piece is partly submerged under water so optical fiber lighting has been used.
