Sphere by Steve Tomlinson was installed on 5th May 2007
It weighs 5.2 tonnes and is five metres in diameter, it was fabricated by SBV Fabrications and Site Services. The spheres arrows light up at night, but sadly it hasn’t been maintained despite costing £165,000 and is covered in large rust patches just 5 years later.
As of March 2013 the council have scrapped this sculpture. Whatever you opinion of the art that’s a disgraceful waste of money for just five years.
