Mirror Stainless Steel Sculpture

The Wave Sculpture

The Wave

Blackpool, Lancashire

Artist: Lucy Glendinning

Rising from the pavement is a mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture, resembling a shining double S-shaped wave. A blue semi-transparent female figure dives downward from it. The sculpture features cut-out shapes illuminated green and red at night, along with a laser-cut pattern with colored resin insets.

The Wave sculpture was created by m-tec in a joint project between Blackpool Borough Council and sculptor Lucy Glendinning. The sculpture, located in St Johns Square, Blackpool, weighs 17 tonnes and stands 10.3m tall.

& m-tec.

The Waves’ complex shape was a challenge for the fabrication team at m-tec. It is made from stainless steel and curved to represent a wave breaking.

The studded resin inserts in the design are internally lit by colour-changing LEDs, to give the structure a constantly changing appearance.
