Water Rings

Courtyard artworks were commissioned for Truro Health Park, by Arts for Health Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, together with integrated planting and lighting.

The public consultation spoke about water features, but safety issues meant that water was not practical, so Steve devised two glass sculptures or Water Rings representing the healing and cleansing qualities that are associated with water.

The commission included planting and ongoing creative main- tenance of the plants, automated irrigation and low energy colour-change LED lighting, all creating two magical spaces, where water seems to hover or be released from gravity, and gently swaying plants can be seen through gorgeous transparent surfaces.
