Type Street Furniture
A series of nine carved brick benches. From 'The Bay and other Artwalks': 'Inspired by the mythical creatures described in the Dylan Thomas poem, 'Ballad of the Long Legged Bait', and by the remarkable reliefs on the nearby Pierhead building, the artist created a series of delightful beastie benches.'
The terracotta bricks for the nine new artworks were supplied by Dennis of Ruabon, the same Wrexham tile and brick company which supplied the Pierhead's decorative panels one hundred years earlier. Cardiff Bay Arts Trust was established in 1990 as part of a policy on public art set out by Cardiff Bay Development Corporation. Over the first decade CBAT has worked with public institutions, private corporations and with the local community to enrich the experience for those who visit, live and work in the area. Following the wind up of CBDC, Cardiff Bay Arts Trust became CBAT The Arts & Regeneration Agency and continues to operate UK wide and internationally.
Each seat is 'named', for example: Bird After Dark
