Exciting times at Stonebridge Mills

April 12, 2022

Chris Knight, the artist behind the popular ‘Cutting Edge’ water sculpture outside Sheffield Railway Station has been commissioned to provide a statement piece of metalwork sculpture for the entrance of the prestigious Stonebridge Mills site in Leeds. His vision for the art called ‘Embrace’ frames a pump wheel salvaged from the mill building and highlights the significance of this piece of machinery as central to the mechanism of what was until then a hand, craft process. The rusted wheel becomes a static statue preserved on a plinth, unmoving, stoic, timeless. The stainless frame surrounds it like a halo drawing focus to its centre. The two parts are an embrace between the past and the future. The comprehensive redevelopment comprises the design and construction of 82 new contemporary-designed houses and the conversion of the existing mill building and cottages into 30 houses. The stunning new show homes are now open for viewings
