Steel Sculpture:

Giant steel bumble bee Sculpture- Canvey Island, Southend on Sea.

Bee sculptureGalvanised and painted steel

Castlepoint Borough Council required a focalpoint sculpture for their ‘Bumbelbee park’. Labworth park has been designed to encourage endangered bumblebees through selective bee-friendly planting. A redundant fountain seemed the obvious elevated position for this giant steel bumblebee designed by Peter Weldon.

The 300 kilo beast was carefully lifted using a special cradle. It was then manoevured into position and fastened down with pegs grouted into the concrete beneath. Now installed the sculpture will be surrounded by dense planting.

The bee appears to have landed for a moment in the middle of the park and is visible from a considerable distance.

It has a wingspan of 2650m and body length 2534mm. The surface is densely textured by the thousands of hammer indentations required to form the steel into the shape.

The giant hex head robot
was finally unpacked in England. At 10ft high the robot is designed to stand on a 4ft box which elevates it to a total 14ft height. The customer is Walsall Council and the robot is designed to be filled with laser lights that rotate from within. It is destined for the Walsall illuminations as a decorative exhibit for their annual show at the Walsall Arboretum.

Steel Robots Autumn 2007.
Peter was commissioned to design and manufacture sheet steel robots for the international street festival held each year by Walsall Council and the Arts Council. ‘Chalk it up’ is a two day event which is a free event and encourages creativity among the general public, particularly children. This years theme was Robots and so Peter designed four life-size sculptural robots inspired by clockwork tin robots of the 1950’s They have moving arms and legs with an access hatch at the rear. With concrete within the boots they stand securely upright without risk of falling over.
