Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Location: Glen Howe Park, North Sheffield. Description: Carved stone. Relief leaves decorate these organic forms. There are two pieces, one placed either side of a wooden bench at Glen Howe Park near the lodge. Commission: Sheffield Recreation Department. The artist lived in the tower at Glen Howe Park under an arrangement by which she donated an agreed amount of artwork per annum in return for rent-free accomodation. In this way the Council did not lose their rights to the Tower, but ensured that the building was inhabited and hence both maintained and vandal-free. Comment: The work is on a very approachable scale, it was originally intended as a memorial to the last gardener to work in the park.
