Newman: 'Two scarlet vaulting braces converge to suspend a scarlet hoop, from which hangs a triangle of triangles, each painted in a primary colour.'
The sculpture is the centrepiece of the Usk Riverfront Promenade and is the first stage of the River Usk Regeneration Project.
Cywaith Cymru: 'The sculpture is intended to symbolise two key elements in Newport's history, evoking maritime and industrial images, from that of a wave in the sea, to a coil of hot steel or a wharf side crane. The choice of steel as the material for the sculpture emphasises Newport's long association with the industry. The Steel Wave is designed to be in constant movement animated by the wind blowing through the triangular vanes which hang from the sculpture's central saddle.'
