From Edge to Edge
Three large separate steel sculptures. The sculpture consists of three abstract shapes portraying futuristic industrial components. The work was designed to create a gateway into Merthyr and reflect the steel industry that made Dowlais famous. The largest piece, an apex through which the Engine House can be viewed, represents the gate way.
'The Merthyr Tydfil Joint Venture was established in 1991. A partnership between Merthyr Tydfil Borough Council, the Welsh Development Agency, Mid Glamorgan County Council and the Merthyr Tydfil Business Forum, pursued a programme focused on the economic and social regeneration of Merthyr Tydfil. They sought to improve the image of the town, and endeavoured to project an impression that was distinctive, contemporary and relevant to the age.' The sculptor was commissioned to produce a piece of art to represent 'industry of the future'. The project was co-ordinated by the County Council and Artworks Wales.
