Wednesday 3rd May

I am delighted to be able to announce that I am shortlisted for a major landmark sculpture to be sited in the raw beauty of Northumberland.

The form, materials and siting of this landmark sculpture have been inspired by the rugged and undulating landscape in which it sits. Made from robust weathering steel, this elevated slice of hillside has the elegance of an aerodynamic form and references the rich history of local iron ore mining. Lateral fins which change in pitch, size and frequency catch the sun, creating shadows and a sense of perspective and movement. Take a unique walk into the Northumbrian landscape by entering Cold Law hill itself, viewing geological time as the carboniferous sandstone bedrock rises above you and then find respite at the hilltop shelter.
