Time to... Cate Watkinson 2006

Made from stainless steel and glass, commissioned by Metier, Newcastle City Council & The Sponsors Club. This land mark piece, reflects the energy and immediacy of the city in sparkling stainless steel, glass and light, acting as a link between the city, the Eastern Quayside and east end, bringing the two sides of the Ouseburn valley closer together. With its frosted glass surface and its curved stainless steel facing towards the river in a rising open V shape, the piece makes reference to the V shape of the Ouseburn Valley. The asymmetrical top reflects the triangular shapes made by the silhouette of the Byker Wall against the skyline, making a link between one side of the valley and the other.
