Hallam University PUBLIC ART IN SHEFFIELD
Outside the Manpower Services Commission
Building, Moorfoot. (A-Z p4 6D)
Large bronze-coloured plastic
fountain sculpture. Very much in keeping with the surrounding architectural
environment. The artist has referred to it as an exploding crucible.
One of several projects by the
same artist for the Property Services Agency of the Department of the Environment.
A mural by the same artist, commissioned by Sheffield
City Council, is located in the same street.
This piece is normally assumed
to be bronze, although this is not the case. In winter water sometimes freezes
on it in a spectacular icefall.
