Michael Condron is an Essex based artist whose practice is founded on the creation of larger than life sculpture. Michael has recently produced these public artworks for the opening of the public transport interchange at Ashton under Lyne based on a modern public transport map.
Glass disks within the artwork are moulded and etched with images of from the past to the present. All of which were created by local school children. As well as the main sculpture there are two wall artworks.
Working on a number of projects for Michael, he is aware of our professionalism and care when it comes to transporting and installing his art.
Our Driver Marcus delivered and installed the sculpture using V100 “Centurion”, 8×2 Rigid, 71 tonne. Michael stated “Please pass on my thanks to Marcus he was excellent throughout, friendly, completely professional and beyond helpful”.
The Bottle Knot sculpture was made following discussions with local historians, schools and the Poole Museum to capture Poole’s maritime and shipbuilding heritage. The sculpture comprises of three loop structures approximately 8mx2mx1m and weighing 300kg each.
The sculpture has a central core with a decorative, polished surface cladding with LED lights under the cladding and gaps to let the light shine through.
Some cladding sections were left off the structure to allow access to lifting points onto the core and this enabled the structure to be transported horizontally.
DWT was employed to deliver the sculpture which was originally due to complete in 2021 but was postponed due to Covid and supply chain issues.
