SHINING STONE

2002
Location: Shenstone near Lichfield
Commissioner: Staffordshire County Council
cast stainless steel
Text design & cutting: Malcolm Sier

I was invited to respond to the site of Lammas Land in Shenstone and took inspiration from the village name, the derivation of which is believed to be beautiful or shining stone.

The sculpture is sited in the Black Brook which runs through the Lammas Land. The sculpture can be viewed from a footbridge on a north – south axis.
Text Irish verse, ninth century author unknown:

A flock of birds settle ….. the green field re- echoes where there is a brisk bright stream
