Cutting Line

This large steel sculpture stands 4.9 meters high, standing tall over the Marsh Mills Retail Park. ‘Spare, simple, strong and timeless … its scale always totally in charge of its setting, words that have been used to describe my sculpture' Ann Christopher once said. ‘I am drawn to the contemplative and calm image and that is what I strive for – journeys of discovery – journeys into the mind.’
