Jo Hayes Ward Sculpture
Jo Hayes Ward & Mount Anvil
Riverside Studios, Queens Wharf, London
Working alongside Jo Hayes Ward millimetre developed this striking artwork for the new riverside studios building on Queens Wharf Hammersmith. Each curved piece was drawn in 3D and developed for cutting and rolling.
The piece is made of 5 sections which were manufactured over a former representing the curve of the building. The plates and sub structure are constructed from mild steel and painted with a variety of metallic paints for a long lifetime specification. The plates are subtly folded to reflect the light differently at different times of day.
The cube is cast aluminium bronze and is the clearest reference to the jewellery produced by the artist.
The entire piece is an abstracted map of the area with the differing orientations reflecting the different local element. Road, River, Grass etc.
