TAFF TRAIL - SWIRL OF LEAVES
A sculpture was commissioned for placement next to the Avon Footbridge along the Taff trail near Merthyr Tydfil town centre.
Initially we ran a large community consultation into public art which included running workshops, writing press releases and articles in the local press to promote a community vote to select a sculpture design from three proposals. The final artwork was selected from 216 votes cast by the local community.
The final piece was initially created in clay and then cast in bronze. It displays imprints of leaves and plants that were collected from along the Taff Trail.
