The Wisewood Animal Totem

Year: 2012-13

Location: Sheffield

Budget: £10,000

Client: Pennine Housing 2000

Role: Lead Artist 

As part of a larger regeneration scheme in the area, we were commissioned to lead the consultation and creation of a series of artworks and street furniture. Working with a storyteller and local residents we created an urban legend which we based the sculptural and street furniture designs on. This totem depicts the main owl character from the legend and all the other animals from the story.
