Material: stainless steel, bronze and grindstones

This 16 feet high sculpture is on the site of a former grindstone works, where ‘stone-time’ was rented out by the day or week to bladesmiths or small edge-tool makers. Layers of steel encase grindstones rescued from the building during demolition. Also fitted into the steelwork are bronze castings of Sheffield knives and blades.
