The Seed Sculpture


Artist: Colin Spofforth

The Seed Sculpture was a joint project Artist-Colin Spofforth between artist Colin Spofforth of Brimstone Artworks and public art fabricators, m-tec.

The twelve-and-a-half metre sculpture was fabricated from duplex stainless steel, laser cut, welded and a glass bead blast finish to the artists’ specification, to produce the sycamore leaf-shaped sculpture.

A Leaf-Shaped Legacy:
The Seed Sculpture Unveiled.

The sculpture now provides a focal point in a major new 450-acre urban business park, developed by Ask: Akeler Developments, located in East Manchester’s regeneration zone.

Artists' Vision:

The intention for the sculpture is to create a bold and sophisticated centrepiece, which incorporates references to growth, development and regeneration. The overall feel is one of organic creation, complemented by the use of contemporary man-made materials.
