Clay Cross artwork installed
Commissioned by Aldi, the brief was to come up with a bespoke art feature for Clay Cross, Chesterfield.
The inspiration for the artwork was taken from the town's rich industrial heritage - the town has a unique character having many brick built domed ventilation shafts, serving the underground tunnel and railway line below, built by George Stephenson .
Standing approximately 4 meters tall and 0.8 meters wide, the feature is reminicent of polished, railway tracks. As well as reflecting the town's past, the feature's uplifting design reaching skywards, also reflects the town's ambition and continuing development into the future.
The artwork is entitled 'Progress'.
