Project Details

Client: Broadbent Studio

Location: Rossall, Fleetwood, Lancashire

CB Arts were approached by great friend and client Stephen Broadbent to design devleop, fabricate and install a series of landmark sculptures along the new sea defences at Rossall, Lancashire.

Part of a new ecology park the 1.5km strip of land is known as Larkholme Grasslands and is already classed as a Biological Heritage Site because of the rare species of flora and fauna that grow there.

Stephen designed a series of colourful aluminium grassland beacons which stand tall at pedestrian access points along the promenade and act as way-finders connecting paths to the promenade.

The 11 metre tall grass like sculptures - nine in total - are stenciled with flora, fauna found in the ecology park and these are complimented by three timber totems which stand at 8 metres tall and feature the name of the park in green lettering.

Artist: Stephen Broadbent

We have worked with Chris and his team for many years now and they have completed some of our most complicated sculpture projects, with the utmost professionalism and care. Our relationship with CB Arts is more than client/supplier, we see Chris and his team as our partners who we trust. Chris Brammall is an artist in his own right and it is this element that makes his manufacture offer special to us, he understands form, scale, aesthetics and how materials will work in the public realm and this is invaluable.

What people say?

We are so delighted with our two major pieces of work from Chris - a Spitfire Sculpture and our staircase. Chris listened to our requirements and gave us designs which exceeded our expectations. The Spitfire is the first thing you see on arrival at DCS Group and it is simply awesome. Then in reception visitors experience his amazing staircase as they make their way to our meeting rooms. All in all - he has created superb work and we are delighted. We would definitely use Chris again.
