I live just over the fields from Steventon and often walk in the places that Jane Austen would have known. Our lives seem somehow connected because of this, somehow woven together. Watching lace being made at the Austen Museum evoked thoughts of the invisible threads that connect us all and this ‘threads’ idea became a unifying motif for the bench design. It’s great to be given this opportunity especially since Austen’s work seems to me to try to give a voice to the “unheard”, something that I strive to do myself.
