Working on the domes
The Rice Pavilion construction is entering a very interesting phase. At the moment the artists Emilia, Chris and Guyan are preparing the familiar Pavilion ‘onion’ domes much loved by residents and visitors alike.
This is a very difficult stage as the foundation of the domes, which are made of timber, are to be covered in hand made rice tiles. Not only was making the tiles a very time consuming and skilful task, but the business of fixing them to the timber frame is extremely tricky.
