Location: Two sculptures mounted on plinths one to either side of the entrance to the, as yet unbuilt, Hungerhill Business Park. Access from the roundabout at the junction of the A18 and A630, Doncaster

Description: Leaf forms mounted on two sandstone plinths either side of the entrance to the Business Park. The leaves are all different: each is cut from steel plate with incised decorative holes, with some bead-blasted detail, and bent into shape. Plasma-cut, pressed, bead-blasted stainless steel. [1]

Inscriptions: The two plinths have the words: "HUNGERHILL" and "BUSINESS PARK" cut on their front face.

Commission: Funded and owned by Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council. The artists were shortlisted and selected after an interview with designs. The steel forms were manufactured by Mayflower Engineering Ltd. of Sheffield; surface details by Impact Beadblasting Ltd. of Chesterfield. Lettering was cut by a stonemason.
There was a formal opening.

Comment: The brief was for a visible and durable entrance feature. Bizarrely, the name of the park had been altered by the time the work was installed; it is yet to be developed. There is something surreal about this entrance feature leading to empty fields.
