PUBLIC ART IN SHEFFIELD
Window grilles; staircase balustrades and railings, 1988
Part of this work has been re-sited in the Winter
Windows on Norfolk Street entrance
to Ruskin Gallery. Interior staircase railing and balustrade also by Lund.
Twisted, hammered and stretched
metal rods of varying length and breadth.
Sheffield City Council, grant-aided
by the Craft Council.
The individual window rods are
an imaginative solution to the security requirements for the gallery. They
also serve to attract attention to the nature of the building.
While the other pieces will be transferred to the new Millennium Galleries,
Lund has insisted that his work is site -specific and that it would not
be appropriate for it to be relocated.
Lund's other work can be seen on his own 'Metalgarden' web site at http://www.metalgarden.co.uk/.
