Count Your Toes
Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Location: Manor Recreation Ground, alongside a cycle path (the Trans Pennine Trail). This is located next to the Parkway near the Prince of Wales Road exit. Description: Two concrete 'feet' with their surfaces decorated with colourful mosaic patterns. Commission: National Cycle Network. Working with children from neighboroughing Pipworth Junior and St Oswald's RC Primary Schools.  Comment: The piece has been badly damaged; first one foot had large areas of tiles removed from it, and then the other suffered the same fate. Each foot was made by children from a different school and the artist suspects that the selective vandalism may have been carried out by children partisan to one or other school.  Two other neighboroughing pieces were installed at the same time by artists Simon Kent and Coralie Turpin, both also working with local schoolchildren.
