Ebb and Flow, Newport

Philip Bews Diane Gorvin
Sculpture for public sites


Ebb and Flow

Maindee Primary School, Newport
Commissioned by LTC Landscape Architecture

Materials - stainless steel and cast glass. This
6m high stainless steel sculpture is based on a river/wave theme, with ten accompanying glass panels set in serpentine railings. It was designed to mark the Corporation Road entrance way to Maindee Primary school and was part of a wider project in Newport to create a footpath link on the east side of the river Usk.

Phil designed the wave structure which was fabricated by Alex Brinkworth Engineering of Stroud.

Diane designed the ten glass panels for the railings. Jackson Fawkes collaborated on the design, cut and fused the glass and added a texture to the panels which they also installed.
