The Seed Sculpture was a joint project Artist-Colin Spofforth between artist Colin Spofforth of Brimstone Artworks and 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.
The sculpture now provides a focal point in a major new 450-acre urban business park, developed by Ask:Akeler Developments, located in East Manchesterís regeneration zone.
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.
