Loughor Foreshore Park Sculpture Project 2011

We undertook a special commission from Groundwork Ltd. to work with the community of Loughor to help design sculptures for this beautiful foreshore park set beside the estuary in Swansea. Our team of artists worked with local Loughor primary schools, Tre-Uchaf and Casllwchwr to gather ideas and make designs before the artists made the final sculptures. The new art pieces have been installed in the park and were officially unveiled by the Lord Mayors of Swansea and Carmarthen and Edwina Hart AM.

Little Egret on Totemic Plinth was designed by our artists with the help of Casllwcher Primary School pupils. The species can be seen reguarly at the park and feeds mainly on fish and small crustacions from the estuary which are carved into the plinth.


Scenes from the old Broadoak colliery at Loughor were designed by our artists with the help of Casllwchwr and Tre-Uchaf pupils and carved into the reclaimed timber from Swansea Docks.


Carving the 4th side of the plinth



The designs for 38 Coping stones set on five walls overlooking the estuary were made by our artists with the help of pupils of Casllwchwr and Tre-Uchaf Primary Schools for the interpretation area. They illustrate the flora and fauna of the Loughor estuary and park.



The Entrance Features concentrate on the rich and varied industrial history of Loughor. They were designed by our artists and the pupils of Casllwchwr and Tre-Uchaf Primary Schools


Footprints on the entrance pieces depict continual transition from past to future.

Trout carved into the Little Egret Plinth. This was one of four sides designed by our artists with the help of Casllwchwr Primary school depicting the food for this bird that has made the Loughor estuary its home. Local green oak from Penclawdd was used for both the sculpture and the plinth.
