Thornbird Railings - Marcela Livingston (2005)

 

 

Thornbird
Thornbird Railings - Marcela Livingston

The Thornbird Railings consist of 25 panels featuring a repetitive pattern, representative of falling leaves or a winged bird.  

Acting as a guide for pedestrians they mark a new path that has been built along the riverside to give a better view of the Tyne and the other artworks in the area.   

The artist carved each section, so it would change according to where the sun lies adding another dimension to the piece. The panels are made from malleable iron, providing the flexibility for the carved detail.  

The railings are 60 metres long and were designed to stand out from the landscape, whilst continuing to enhance the surrounding environment.

Funded by One North East through the Single Regeneration Budget.
