Hot dip galvanized sycamores invite people into new Kent housing development

Created by artist Steve Tomlinson

A public art display has been unveiled at a new housing development near Maidstone in Kent.

Situated on the borders of the village of Bearsted, the art installation celebrates new communities, as well as the social, architectural and historical, aspects of the site and nearby villages.

Standing 2.4m tall, the sculpture was made from hot dip galvanized steel by metal artist Steve Tomlinson.

This was the perfect project for Steve, whose works are often inspired by the natural world.

Dandara (the independent house builder behind the development) said: “The striking new piece of art has been positioned at the entrance to the development, where it can be admired by everyone passing in and out of the estate, as well as being studied at close range by people waiting at the adjacent bus stop.

Premier Galvanizing Hull was honoured to hot dip galvanize the sculpture for the artist.
