East Middlesbrough Industrial Estate. Steel and Cast Iron. Up to 2m (h). 2010
Client: Groundwork NE & MBC.
On a prominent route into East Middlesbrough Industrial Estate ‘Square and Pencil’ provide a unique identity for the revamped Queensway car park entrance. The giant Square, Pencil and eraser will surprise visitors to the estate while the accompanying nail and staple bollards provide a functional yet sculptural barrier to vehicles.
A second sculpture 'Hammer' was installed along another access road into the estate and this giant claw hammer appears to be puling a giant nail out of the ground.
These installations of giant familiar objects symbolize work, industry and invention.
