Another trip over to Hull today to check on the progress of the Bilston piece. It should be finished this week and will be delivered to the studio early next week.

Yesterday we spent the day with the guys at Argent Engineering in Hull putting together the first 4 sections of the sculpture for Bilston New Sector Police Station. After some initial discussion the work came together quite quickly.
The first 4 sections are now all tacked ready for welding. There are a further 3 sections to make but now the first sections are together these should be quite straight forward as they are simply the same piece made in the opposite hand.
Appropriate supports will be added on the backs of the pieces. The sculpture will be viewed from the front only so substantial supports can be added to the reverse of the pieces without detracting too much from the design.
The spirals create fantastic shadows.
The sculptural seating supports have now all been cast. There’s just a bit of fettling to do before they return to the studio.
Hopefully we will take delivery of these pieces within the next week so we can begin to fit the oak seat.
