History

History:Commissioned by: Adur District Council, Berkley Homes, PRC Fewster; South East England Development Agency (SEEDA); Arts Council England SE (contributed £23,500, added to money assigned by Berkley Homes).

'Inspiration for Steven Follen’s pieces came from the rhythm of the tides, and evidence of erosion in the estuary. ''The fluid lines of the gabion seating and the tree grilles echo the ripple patterns on the water surface and riverbed. The palette of materials I have used: galvanised steel, stone aggregate and timber, is quiet and integral, the pieces designed to blend into and make visual connections with
both their built and natural surroundings and connect the designs to their location in Ropetackle Square.''
('Sculpture at Ropetackle')
