Riverside Rivets

Riverside Rivets - Andrew McKeown

Sited underneath the King Edward V11 Railway Bridge these sculptures refer to the thousands of rivets holding this historic bridge together. The materials the rivets are made from, cast iron deliberately refers to Gateshead and the North East Region’s proud engineering and industrial heritage and the place names that are included on each rivet give them a local context and individual identity.
